2014 Davidson Family Fellowship – Due April 15, 2014

February 26, 2014 – 7:32 am

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art invites applications for its 2014 Davidson Family Fellowship. Established in 1996 by a generous gift from the Davidson Family Charitable Foundation, the fellowship provides support for scholars holding the PhD (or equivalent) or PhD candidates to work on research projects in American art that advance scholarship by connecting with objects in the museum’s permanent collection.

Successful candidates should have an in-depth knowledge of the history of American art and culture in areas represented by the museum’s collections that is demonstrated in coursework and/or publications. Proposals from qualified individuals in disciplines other than art history are also encouraged. Preference will be given to projects that most fully leverage the complement of collections and research resources available at the museum. Awards are based on merit and are open to all qualified individuals. Applicants may be affiliated with a university, museum, or independent.

The stipend rate is $3,000 per month. The fellowship may range from a minimum one-month to a maximum four-month period of full-time research at the museum. The application deadline is April 15, 2014, for a fellowship period to start on or after September 1, 2014. Housing and travel expenses are to be managed by the fellow, although the museum is available for assistance in locating accommodations. The museum will announce awards by May 31, 2014.

Reminder – Summer 2014 Archer Graduate Fellowship Deadline Approaching (1/24)

January 13, 2014 – 10:06 am

The application deadline (Jan 24)  is fast approaching for participation in the summer 2014 Archer Graduate Program in Washington, DC. I would request that you distribute this message to faculty and interested graduate students in your department.

The 9-credit program consists of two dedicated Archer courses: POLS 5392: Federal Policymaking; and POLS 5692: Archer Internship, at a venue of the student’s choice (typically on Capitol Hill, in an Executive Branch agency, or other Washington governmental or non-governmental organizations). Credits may be applied to degree plans in participants’ home departments and programs in consultation with each student’s chair and faculty supervisor.

This is an intensive 12-week program. Tentative dates for the 2014 session are May 27-August 15. The cost is $3,900, which is paid in lieu of nine UT Arlington graduate hours of tuition and all fees. Housing in comfortable townhomes on Capitol Hill is available at $3,028, but participants are free to make other arrangements). The central administration anticipates being able to provide a subvention to assist UT Arlington students in defraying the cost of the program.

All students at the master’s or doctoral level who have an interest in public policy, irrespective of their academic discipline, are encouraged to consider participating in this program. Students in Political Science and in the School of Urban and Public Affairs will find this a splendid opportunity to learn firsthand about the workings of the federal government; those in Education, Nursing, the sciences, Social Work, and Healthcare Administration will find it especially relevant to their understanding of the implications of federal policy for their respective fields. Faculty are asked to bring the program to the attention of students who will find it especially relevant to their professional goals.

The application deadline is January 24, 2014. Interviews of finalists will be held on campus in late January and early February 2014, and selectees will be notified soon thereafter.

Detailed information on the program (including application materials) may be found here. Questions about the program may be referred to Dr. Karl Petruso, Dean of the Honors College and UT Arlington representative to the Archer Program: petruso@uta.edu.
