IAP traveling fellowship available


The Kelly-Douglas Fund has added an IAP traveling fellowship to its roster of grants. The application deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Any junior or first-term senior with IAP travel plans related to a project within any field of the humanities, arts or social sciences is invited to apply for a fellowship. Applications should consist of two letters. The first is a description of the travel itinerary, the reasons for and goals of the expedition, and an estimate of cost for transportation, lodging and food. The second is an evaluation of the description by an MIT instructor who is familiar with the applicant's work.

The Kelly-Douglas Fund is in its 29th year of providing grants of up to $400 each for humanistic scholarship and teaching. Three years ago, it established a summer traveling fellowship for juniors. Ten fellowships of up to $1,500 apiece have been given so far.

Application letters for IAP traveling fellowships should be sent to Pamela Hamada in music and theater arts (Room 4-246, phamada@mit.edu). Questions should be addressed to Professor Lowell Lindgren (lindgren@ mit.edu), director of the Kelly-Douglas Fund.
