Deadline Reminder: 2017-2018 Rovensky Fellowships

Two $9,000 Rovensky Fellowships will be awarded for doctoral students writing their dissertations in U.S. business or economic history.
    Applicants must be working toward a Ph.D. degree with U.S. 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 2017. Awards are non-renewable, but awardees may use the fellowship concurrently with other funding sources, including grants or teaching assignments.
     More information and a link to the application form can be found on the BHC website at http://www.thebhc.org/awards/rovenann.html.
    Inquiries may be directed to Marcelo Bucheli at mbucheli@illinois.edu. Completed applications for the fellowship must be received no later than Friday, February 17, 2017. Winners will be announced at the 2017 Business History Conference Banquet. All application materials should be sent as e-mail file attachments (PDF format) to mbucheli@illinois.edu.
     The fellowships are available largely through the generosity of the late John E. Rovensky and are administered by the University of Illinois Foundation.
