GAANN Fellowships Available for Doctoral Students Researching Language-Related Field

The Graduate School of Education (GSE) is pleased to announce new GAANN (Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need) fellowships available for current or future doctoral students pursuing foreign language and foreign language-related research full-time. Applicants must be U.S. citizens in good academic standing that are eligible for financial aid. The fellowship will support tuition and stipends, up to $32,000 per year, over a three-year period, beginning spring 2015.
The goal of the fellowships are to sustain and enhance the nation’s capacity for teaching and research in areas of national need by increasing the number of highly qualified students, particularly minority group members and women, obtaining degrees related to language education. The program aims to increase the number of individuals who can conduct scientific research and prepare researchers in foreign languages and foreign language-related matters. The program also seeks to increase the number of specialists in linguistics, sociolinguistics, second language acquisition, and disciplines that intersect with foreign language learning and teaching.
Three of the fellowships will be funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s GAANN program. The GSE is funding the fourth fellowship.
For application information and other questions, please contact Dr. Nydia Flores by Friday, October 17, 2014.
