Students wishing to be nominated for the IUCU dissertation fellowship should first secure the support of their dissertation director, and then notify Jon Simons of their intention to apply. Jon will write letters of support for whomever has the support of their advisor.
As the department is not being asked to rank or pre-sort the applications, the GAC will not need time to review the applications. However, as Jon also needs to write a letter for each applicant, a copy of your application, including the letter from your advisor must be submitted by April 10th, 2009.
Application details and forms are available at
