Thanks to the Stephen Cohen fellowship, NYU hopes to offer funding (up to full tuition) to their best candidates. To be considered for this and other NYU scholarships, applications must be submitted by Feb. 15, 2017.
The department offers an interdisciplinary M.A. in Russian and Slavic studies, a program that allows students to take Russia-related courses in departments across NYU. In addition to the departmental curriculum’s particular strengths in literature and film, the course of study can encompass a wide variety of specializations, from history and anthropology to politics, music, linguistics, and performance studies. With its focus on interdisciplinarity and comparative methodologies, the program can serve as excellent preparation for graduate study at the Ph.D. level. It also provides a thorough grounding in the Russia field for terminal M.A. students who choose to pursue a career in this area. Finally, students can take advantage of the events and other intellectual opportunities offered by NYU’s Jordan Center for Russian Studies: http://jordanrussiacenter.org/

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.

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.
