2011-2012 Rovensky Fellowship Applications Available

Applicants are sought for up to two $10,000 fellowships for doctoral thesis research in American business or economic history. These fellowships are available largely through the generosity of the late John E. Rovensky. The Rovensky Fellowship program is administered by the University of Illinois Foundation.

Applicants must be working toward a Ph.D. degree with American business or economic history as the area of major interest. Fellowship recipients must be enrolled in a doctoral program at an accredited college or university in the United States. Preference will be given to applicants who are preparing for a career in teaching and research and who will have completed all graduate course work prior to the fall of 2011. Awards are non-renewable and may not be taken simultaneously with an Economic History Association graduate dissertation fellowship.

Application forms may be found on the web at http://www.thebhc.org/awards/rovenapp.html; the full announcement is at http://www.thebhc.org/awards/rovenann.html.
