Call for PJHR GTA Fellowships

Call for PJHR GTA Fellowships

Thursday, Nov 12, 2020

In the interest of recruiting outstanding graduate students whose work intersects with the Peace, Justice, and Human Rights (PJHR) Platform, the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will provide two competitive Dean’s Fellowships in Peace, Justice, and Human Rights. Each Fellowship is in the amount of $3,000, which will be added to the standard Graduate Teaching Assistantship offered by the student’s department and, pending satisfactory progress, will be renewable for the duration of the student’s funding in their program.

Interested students should submit their application to the Graduate Program by January 15, 2021, and be sure that their Statement of Purpose identifies their interest in the Fellowship and explains how their research interests engage Peace, Justice, and/or Human Rights.  These research areas may include but are not limited to Holocaust Studies; the study and practice of political diplomacy particularly in the pursuit of peace; the history and practice of human rights advocacy and social movements (including, for example, the feminist movement, the Civil Rights movement, the history and practice of Gay and Lesbian rights movements, the Trans rights movement, etc.).  Fellowships can be awarded to students engaged in humanities or social science research in these areas, or to students creating art, music, theatre, or literature that addresses one or more of these issues.
