|Location:||Minnesota, United States|
The Center for Rural and Regional Studies at Southwest Minnesota State University announces Rural and Regional Fellowships for graduate and post-graduate students. Rural and Regional Fellows will be chosen biannually from the whole range of natural, social, and historical sciences, as well as from economics, business, or agronomy. Fellows will be selected on the basis of their projected research and the likelihood that their completed research will result in useful knowledge, stimulate fresh approaches to regional studies, and prove worthy of eventual publication. The fellows program supports researchers exploring any of a broad range of topics related to southwestern Minnesota, the upper Midwest, and the northern prairie. Possible candidates include graduate students with thesis topics or chapters relevant to the Center's mission, as well as post-doctorates or independent scholars pursuing similar research. Fellows will receive a monthly stipend of $2,500 for each month in residence, for a maximum of four months. The program provides a $500 bonus to fellows who produce significant work meriting publication. The maximum stipend is $10,500 for a four-month tenure and production of significant scholarly work. During their research tenure, Fellows will also have access to moderate research funds. Fellowship requires term in residence in southwestern Minnesota. To apply for a fellowship, send a two-page letter describing the place of southwestern Minnesota, the upper Midwest, and/or the northern prairie in your research and indicate what contribution you intend to make to your chosen subject and to regional studies. Explain your topic, your approach, the stage of your work, and your qualifications to undertake and complete it. Include two letters of recommendation and a copy of your curriculum vitae, and send to: Anthony Amato, Center for Rural and Regional Studies, Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota 56258. Phone: (507) 537-6117. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Web: http://www.southwestmsu.edu/regional/Fellows/Fellows.html. Applications for the fall semester fellowships must be received by April 29.
