The CIC is proud to announce the 2013 CIC/Smithsonian Institution Fellowship awardees.
Fellowships are offered by the Committee on Institutional Cooperation and the Smithsonian Institution to provide opportunities for graduate students to conduct research in association with members of the Smithsonian professional research staff, and to utilize the resources of the Institution. These one-year fellowships are offered through the Smithsonian's Office of Fellowships and Internships in partnership with the Committee on Institutional Cooperation in order to support research in residence at Smithsonian Institution facilities. Fellowships carry a stipend of $30,000. All fields of study that are actively pursued by the museums and research organizations of the Smithsonian Institution are eligible.
