East Asian Visiting Student Fellowship
Visiting Graduate Fellowship in the History of Science and Technology at the Johns Hopkins University
The department of the History of Science and Technology at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for graduate student fellowships in the history of modern East Asian science and technology. Eligible students must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program and be working in the history of modern East Asian science or technology.
The Fellow is not considered an official student of Johns Hopkins University and should remain enrolled as a full-time graduate student at his or her home institution during the fellowship year. However, as a visiting graduate student we welcome your participation in our graduate program. Fellows may attend any of our graduate seminars and our weekly departmental colloquium. If feasible, the Fellow will be invited to present his or her research in a department seminar or as part of our informal “lunch talks” series during the spring semester.
Fellows who apply for a one-semester visit will receive a fellowship of $12,000, while those who apply for a two-semester fellowship would receive $28,000. Both visiting fellowships will receive a reimbursement account of up to $1,000 to support research expenses or travel to professional meetings. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2017. The two semester fellowship begins on the fall term starting August 27, 2017, while one semester fellowships may begin on either August 27, 2017 or January 29, 2018. The fellow is expected to cover his or her travel costs between Baltimore and the home institution and must remain at JHU until the end of the semester during which the student is in residence.
Applicants should send a dissertation proposal or research project proposal of 500 words in length, a writing sample, a transcript from the home institution, and arrange for a letter of recommendation to be sent directly from a faculty member at the home institution. Application materials may be sent by email or post. Foreign applicants must meet visa requirements depending on their country of origin and the applicant must apply for the visa. JHU will provide all necessary documentation for the visa application.
Applicants must write and speak well in English.
Applications should be sent to:
