International Studies Fellowships
At the discretion of the selection committee, the Center for Global Studies offers International Studies Fellowships for applicants coming from outside the Champaign-Urbana area. If selected, fellows are provided up to 7 days of paid housing and up to 8 days of paid parking at Presby Hall in a three-bedroom suite with single rooms and shared bathrooms. If awarded, participants will be notified in their acceptance letter.
As part of the application, participants are expected to turn in a research or program plan. This can be in the form of a draft or current syllabus; an abstract for a white paper; a library collection development abstract; or a draft plan for a new international education program. While in residence at Illinois, all participants are expected to build on this plan and produce a completed product or substantial draft for the Centers. These materials will be published in our institutional repository, IDEALS. A $1,000 honorarium is available, contingent upon receipt of these materials by our August deadline (TBA). This honorarium can be used to offset travel expenses and support the implementation of participant’s projects.
Required materials need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow CGS two weeks to respond.
**Due to the end of our grant cycle, all materials must be submitted no later than our August deadline (TBA). Any materials submitted after this date will not be eligible for the honorarium.
The research honorarium will be transfered once your required materials are received and approved. Please allow approximately 6 weeks for all payments to transfer.
