Funding Opportunity: Erne Fellowship for Serbian Studies (Indiana University)

Deadline for Applications: Ongoing

Indiana University alumni Ann Jakisich Erne and David A. Erne have established the Ann and David Erne Fellowship to support the studies of an incoming graduate student enrolled in the Russian and East European Institute Master’s degree plan. The one-year fellowship provides a stipend of $22,000; College of Arts and Sciences fee remission towards 12 hours of College of Arts and Sciences credit in both the Fall and Spring semesters as well as 6 hours of College of Arts and Sciences credit in the following summer session; and health insurance. The fellowship is renewable for an additional year for recipients who maintain satisfactory academic standing. No separate application is necessary (i.e. the standard application to the REEI MA program will also serve as application for this fellowship). Natives of Serbia, persons of Serbian heritage, and persons who demonstrate a strong scholarly focus on Serbia will be given special consideration in the selection process.

The fellowship will be awarded every other year, beginning in 2017-18.
