Albuquerque, NM, September 6, 2023 - Indigenous Education, Inc.(IEI) announces The Elouise Cobell Dissertation Writing-Year Fellowship administered on behalf of the Cobell Board of Trustees.
The Cobell Board of Trustees and the Cobell Scholarship Program are excited to announce our newest fellowship opportunity, the Elouise Cobell Dissertation Writing-Year Fellowship! This new Fellowship will include up to ten $30,000 awards annually to American Indian/Alaska Native doctoral students who are within 12 months of completing their dissertation. All applicants must be enrolled full-time, be a member of a U.S. Federally Recognized American Indian or Alaska Native Tribe, and plan to spend the majority of their award year writing and defending their dissertation. Writing-Year Fellowships will be awarded in Spring 2024 following a national competition administered by Indigenous Education, Inc. on behalf of the Cobell Scholarship Program. The awards will be made to scholars who, in the judgment of the review panel, have demonstrated superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in their discipline, show promise of future achievement as scholars, and may utilize Indigenous research methodologies to enrich their field of study, their tribal community, and/or their college/university. In addition to direct Fellowship funding, Fellow awardees will also be provided individual dissertation coaching, monthly cohort guided discussions, and additional travel support to attend the inaugural Cobell Fellowship Symposium. Limited to doctoral students in Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Education (EdD), and Doctor of Science (DSc) programs, this Fellowship may also consider academic doctorates in combination with professional degrees such as a Juris Doctorate (JD) with PhD, Medical Doctor (MD) with PhD, etc. on a case-by-case basis once a full application is submitted by January 10, 2024.
