ARIEL Scholarship in Postcolonial and Globalization Studies

The ARIEL Scholarship in Postcolonial and Globalization Studies is typically awarded to an incoming doctoral student in the amount of $12,000. In the event that no suitable PhD student arises, the scholarship may be awarded to an MA student in the amount of $10,000. To be eligible, a student must be working in the field of postcolonial or globalization studies. An individual student may only receive the award once. Decisions on the scholarships will be made either by the ARIEL editors or a committee selected by the editors and will coincide with departmental review of applications to the graduate programs in English. The scholarship will be available to an incoming student in the class entering in the Fall of 2014. Continuation of this scholarship will be reviewed every year and will be contingent on ARIEL's budget.

For more information, please contact Dr. Jacqueline Jenkins, Associate Head, Graduate or Dr. Michael Clarke, ARIEL Editor.
