Graduate Student Lounge, Johnson Center 3rd Floor, Fairfax Campus

Learn more about fellowships and scholarships for overseas research, language study, and professional development at the graduate level.  The session will cover well-known opportunities such as Fulbright, Boren Fellowships, and Critical Languages Scholarships, as well as awards for overseas dissertation research (including Fulbright-Hays, SSRC IDRF, IREX IARO, and American Councils) and international professional development fellowships (including Bosch, Alfa, EMDAP, and more.)  We will also discuss strategies for finding smaller, targeted awards to support short-term travel or language study.

This workshop is free and open to all GMU graduate students, including incoming students.

The first hour of the session will focus on awards open to both master’s and doctoral students.  The second hour will focus on dissertation research and post-doctoral fellowships.  Participants may choose to attend only one part of the presentation according to their interests.

For more information or to RSVP please contact the Director of Graduate Fellowships, Dr. Kay Agoston, at [log in to unmask].  Seating is limited.  RSVP is preferred.  Walk-ins will be accommodated as seating capacity allows.
