2014-2015 Undergraduate Fellowship

APPLICATION DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 15, 2014.

The France-Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Studies is pleased to announce the creation of The FSCIS Undergraduate Fellowship Program.

OBJECTIVE
The France-Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Studies aims to bridge the disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, sciences, engineering, business and law, addressing historical and contemporary issues of significance for France and the United States from a broad range of perspectives. Its programs bring faculty members, researchers and students from across Stanford's departments and schools into contact with colleagues in France, to explore issues of common intellectual concern, to advance collaborative research, and to foster interdisciplinary inquiry.

ELIGIBILITY
Applicants for the Undergraduate Fellowship Program must be Stanford undergraduate students – i.e., they must be pursuing a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Sciences (B.S.) or a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (B.A.S.) degree. 

The FSCIS Undergraduate Fellowships are intended to fund those undergrads interested in undertaking research or pursuing an internship at a French institution (including universities, non-governmental organizations, and corporations). Please note that this program is not intended to fund summer language studies. If you are interested in pursuing such studies, contact Denise Winters (denisew1 [at] stanford [dot] edu), Undergraduate Student Services Specialist in the Division of Literatures, Cultures and Languages for more information on the DLCL Summer Funding Application.

If you are awarded a grant, in order to receive your stipend you must show proof of current enrollment to the Student Affairs Officer of your department.

Accordingly, projects planned for the fall, winter, or spring quarters can be funded only if (1) the applicant receives approval for a leave of absence; and (2) such leave is approved for academic purposes.

For more information on Undergraduate Leaves of Absence, please visit:
http://www.stanford.edu/dept/registrar/bulletin1112/4956.htm 

In addition, pursuant to Stanford policy, all grant recipients must be enrolled at Stanford the quarter following the completion of the project for which they received funding. Thus, students who wish to pursue a fellowship the summer after their senior year may do so, but only if they apply for and receive permission from the University Registrar to enroll for a “graduation quarter” the following fall.

For more information on graduation quarters, please visit: http://www.stanford.edu/dept/registrar/bulletin1011/4941.htm

FUNDING
Students are expected to pursue projects that will take on the order of 2 to 4 months to complete.  The maximum funding available is $7,000.  As indicated in the application materials, please submit an itemized budget. Funding can be used to cover travel (airfare and additional transportation), lodging, and other costs of living while undertaking the project.

Application Procedure and Deadlines

Applicants should submit the following documents:

  • Completed application form (1 page).
  • Itemized budget (1 page).
  • Letter to the France-Stanford Center Director describing the applicant’s research interests and plans during the proposed visit to a French institution (including inter alia, universities, NGOs and corporations). The letter should identify the particular individuals with whom the applicant will be working, including one who agrees to serve as the official “sponsor”. The letter should also indicate the proposed length of stay (between two to four months) and discuss ways in which the applicant’s research and educational objectives will further the goals of the France-Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (2 pages).
  • Recommendation letter from the applicant’s advisor, discussing the applicant and the merits of the proposed visit (1 page). Advisor should send letter directly by email to Isabelle Collignon, isabelle [at] stanford [dot] edu.
  • Letter from the individual serving as the official sponsor, explaining the nature of the applicant’s proposed research/work activities and plans fully to incorporate him/her into the host environment (1 page).
  • Applicant’s CV (1 page).

DEADLINE
Please submit the application materials by February 15, 2014.

Late applications are unlikely to be accepted. Notification of fellowship recipients will occur in the spring.
