Lumina Foundation for Education and the Association for the Study of Higher Education Announce Fellowship Program
Deadline: May 10, 2007

With support from Lumina Foundation for Education (<a href="http://www.luminafoundation.org/">http://www.luminafoundation.org/</a>), the Association for the Study of Higher Education (<a href="http://www.ashe.ws/">http://www.ashe.ws/</a>) announces the ASHE/Lumina Foundation Fellowship Program.

The key objective of this initiative is to promote innovative scholarship by creating an intergenerational community of scholars who will examine social, institutional, and policy barriers to opportunity and student success. The grant will fund eight to ten dissertation fellowships a year for a three-year period.

Fellowships in the amount of $14,000 each will support dissertation research on the broad topics of financial aid, student retention and success, and adult learners and learning. The fellowships will support up to one year of activity that will be conducted through the students’ home universities and can be used to support costs of supplying data, dissemination of project results, travel, tuition, and salary for the fellows.

Doctoral students affiliated with any accredited doctoral program may submit a proposal. The program welcomes applications from students in higher education, economics, sociology, and other fields. Students in doctoral programs outside the United States may apply if their study is about student access and success in the U.S.

Applicants for the fellowship must have completed their course work, successfully passed required qualifying examinations, and have their dissertation proposals accepted by their institutions by May 10, 2007.

Visit the ASCHE Web site for complete program information and application requirements.
