Graduate Student Fellowships: Rackham International Research Awards (RIRA), U-M

Deadline: February 1, 2013

The Rackham Graduate School announces 2013 Rackham International Research Awards (RIRA) to support University of Michigan doctoral and master’s students conducting degree-related research outside the United States and Puerto Rico. The grant is intended to defray the costs of conducting clearly defined research projects that are directly related to the applicant’s dissertation or thesis. The maximum award amount is $10,000.

Doctoral students must reach candidacy by September 2013 and have an approved dissertation topic. Students in master’s programs must be engaged in a non-course related research project required for their degree. Students of any citizenship may apply. Students may not apply exclusively for language training, but may submit proposals that combine language study with research. Students with external research fellowship support may apply, but must demonstrate convincing need for additional funding. Students who have previously received a Rackham International Research Award are ineligible.

Applications should be submitted by 11:59pm on Friday, February 1, 2013.

The online application and further information are available at http://www.rackham.umich.edu/funding/from_rackham/student_application/international_research_awards/.
