How it Works
Under this fellowship program, the Smithsonian Institution and the Fellow’s university share the cost of support. Students enrolled at CIC member universities apply directly via the Smithsonian’s Online Application System (SOLAA). The Smithsonian Institution will review applications and award up to seven (7) CIC Fellowships to eligible applicants from CIC institutions.
Students must have completed all course work for their programs, and must have been admitted into doctoral candidacy and satisfied all requirements except completion of the dissertation in order to qualify. Only students enrolled at CIC institutions are eligible to apply.
The stipend is $32,700 for one year, and fellows are eligible for tuition and health insurance benefits in accordance with their university policy. Fellows are eligible to receive allowances for related expenses and for temporary relocation to the Smithsonian.
See Program Guide for full details. The application materials must be submitted electronically between September 2, 2014 and December 1, 2014 at 5 PM through https://solaa.si.edu.
