Funding for Graduate Studies [Jun. 28th, 2008|08:33 pm]
scholarships and fellowships

calgirl07
Hi everyone!  I'm new to the community.  I just got into a Masters program in England and am looking for funding, but all fellowships and scholarships deadlines seem to have passed.  I am slightly desperate in my search because I wasn't offered any money from the school.  Its for a Masters in Human Rights program.  If anyone knows of any sources still accepting applications, it would be most appreciated.

Hi, am new to this c o m m u n i t y.

Am 25 years old, i think that qualifies me as an adult student. i finished HS in 2000 and i went to collage but i didn't finished it, mind heart and mind weren't in it. Now that am trying to go back to school am having difficulties obtaining my transcripts because of my history. so i want to know, if there are ways of applying as a freshman student without compromising my education. I also want to know if there is anyone out there who knows of a good resource to get scholarships or grants or loans from. I've googled already and i don't seem to find anything credible.
i want to get into the field of art theraphy.

If anyone knows of anything or has experienced the same thing, p l e a s e let us relate a l i t t l e.

Funding in Science Education? [Apr. 3rd, 2007|01:36 pm]
scholarships and fellowships

parathalyn
Is anyone aware of funding opportunities available for graduate students (PhD) looking to do research in science education (either in general or anything specifically relating to education in biological sciences and evolution)? I've applied to some long shots, but I'm finding little that is specific enough that I'd have a good shot at it.

Thanks for any leads/tips that you have to offer!

X-posted a few places, sorry if you see this more than once.

The Institute of Ecumenical Studies (Lviv, Ukraine) announces a new international fellowship in Ecumenical Studies for the 2007-2008 academic year.

The Ecumenical Studies Fellow will work to coordinate our new English language master’s degree in Ecumenical Studies by distance learning. The framework for the program has already been developed, but the fellow will work to improve and expand the program, to advertise it, and to grade work submitted by students.

In addition, the fellow will lecture one course (in English) each week for the Ukrainian students of the ecumenical studies program. She or he will proofread and edit materials in English on a regular basis, and may assist in translating ecumenical texts into English.

The benefits of the fellowship include: a stipend of $500 per month (enough to live on in Lviv), a desk and a computer with internet access at the Ukrainian Catholic University, and support for any individual research that the fellow wishes to undertake. The fellow will enjoy the vacations of the Ukrainian Catholic University.

Applicants should be fluent in English, with a background in theology and ecumenical studies. They should hold at least a bachelor’s degree by August 2007; current graduate students or those with a graduate degree may receive preference. Knowledge of French, Russian or Ukrainian would be useful, but is not required. This would be an excellent opportunity for students of ecumenical studies to learn more about the Eastern Christian churches, and to study their contributions to the ecumenical movement.

Applicants should submit a resume or c.v. and a cover letter explaining their interest in applying for the fellowship to Liza Anderson (liza@ucu.edu.ua) by March 31st, 2007. In their cover letter, applicants should state the qualifications that they would bring to the position, and what they hope to learn during their time in Ukraine.

You can find more information about the Institute of Ecumenical Studies on our website: http://www.ecumenicalstudies.org.ua/eng/ The Ukrainian Catholic University is a Greek Catholic University, but staff of the Institute of Ecumenical Studies come from several different Christian traditions.

Please direct any questions about the fellowship position to Liza Anderson at liza@ucu.edu.ua.

Lists kicking about? [Dec. 24th, 2006|07:53 pm]

[mood |hopefulhopeful]

As I'm at my parent's house celebrating the holidays (and definitley not doing enough work) I've decided to go on another scholarship/fellowship/grant search to dig up a bit of free money for my PhD. This will also help stave off the inevitable 3 month wait to find out if I got in, for even if I didn't, winning a few of these suckers will help me get in next time.

So-- does anyone have any favorite sites or listings of these types of things?

I'll go first: I found an amazing site (http://www.lib.msu.edu/harris23/grants/3gradinf.htm) that has a list of postgraduate fellowships, scholarships and loans available. www.fastweb.com is alright as well, though can be annoying, as I'm sure you all know by now.

Any other sugestions?
