Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship Program to Fund Education
Research

Deadline: November 2, 2007

The Spencer Foundation ( http://www.spencer.org/ ) Dissertation
Fellowship Program seeks to encourage a new generation of scholars
from a wide range of disciplines and professional fields to
undertake research relevant to the improvement of education. The
$25,000 fellowships support individuals whose dissertations show
potential for bringing fresh and constructive perspectives to the
history, theory, or practice of formal or informal education
anywhere in the world.

Although the dissertation topic must concern education, graduate
study may be in any academic discipline or professional field.
Candidates should be interested in pursuing further research in
education once the doctorate is attained.

Applicants need not be citizens of the United States; however, they
must be candidates for the doctoral degree at a graduate school
within the United States. The fellowships are not intended to
finance data collection or the completion of doctoral course- work,
but rather to support the final analysis of the research topic and
the writing of the dissertation. All applicants must document that
they will have completed all pre-dissertation requirements by June
1, 2008, and must provide a clear and specific plan for completing
the dissertation within a one- or two-year time frame.

The 2008 dissertation fellowship instructions will be available at
the Spencer Foundation Web site.

$30,000

PBT,
213 CBT, 80 IBT, 6.5 IELTS. (NB: students attending secondary school

medium of instruction do NOT have to take these tests. A phone
interview may be recommended instead.)

outside the US!

No one is safe anywhere,
Thieves are rampant everywhere
Light is stolen,

Mud is stolen,
Love is stolen,
Life and death are stolen
Alas! What can you expect from others,
When God himself is a thief?
