The Center for International Studies announces the International Predissertation Fellowship Program for doctoral students in political science, economics, and urban studies and planning.

The program is for students in the early stages of doctoral training who wish to obtain supplementary area and language training to study in Africa, China, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and South or Southeast Asia. It is sponsored by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC).

The award provides support during 12 months of full-time study. It includes tuition and fees for overseas or domestic language training, and for area studies course work at the home university or at a university in the region of interest.
