Institute of International Studies Pre-Dissertation (IIS) grant will award fellowships of up to $5000 for graduate students who have not yet advanced to candidacy.
Fellowship funds are intended to support travel, lodging, and research-related expenditures for graduate students who are conducting research away from campus during Summer 2015. Projects should be international and/or comparative in nature, and/or related to the study of languages, and/or involve substantial research outside of the United States.
International students enrolled in doctoral programs at UC Berkeley are particularly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to students who cannot apply for other sources of funding within the United States.
The deadline is January 20,2015. See the Institute of International Studies website for more information.
