Roshan Institute Fellowships in Persian Linguistics, Language Acquisition, and Applied Linguistics
This Fellowship program supports qualified PhD students studying Persian linguistics, language acquisition, and applied linguistics at the College of Languages, Linguistics, and Literature at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Two fellowship awards are available for 2014–2015 and are made possible through a grant from Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute (www.roshan-institute.org).
Fellows must be admitted to a doctoral program in the College of Languages, Linguistics, and Literature. The fellowships carry an annual stipend of approximately $18,000, full tuition waiver, and a benefits package including health insurance. The fellowships may be renewable for up to three years based on academic performance. Fellows are also asked to participate in Persian language instruction and to assist with content courses related to their research projects.
