      Distinguished Graduate Scholar Award for New Doctoral Students
      College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs
      University of Illinois at Chicago

      The UIC College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs Distinguished
      Graduate
      Scholar Award Program offers highly qualified applicants to its doctoral
      programs a guarantee of up to four years of tuition-free education and
      salaries of up to $15,000 per academic year for work as research
      assistants
      in one of the College's <http://www.uic.edu/cuppa/> seven research centers
      and institutes.

      Selected students prepare for research careers in Public Administration
      <http://www.uic.edu/cuppa/pa/ > or in Urban Planning and Policy
      <http://www.uic.edu/cuppa/upp/> by studying with faculty in one of the
      College's academic departments and in one of its nationally recognized
      research centers.

      Scholars are expected to complete all required course work and pass their
      preliminary examinations during their first two years of study. Scholars
      spend the next two years pursuing advanced research in their selected
      research center.

      For fullest consideration, students should be admitted to one of the
      College's Ph.D.programs no later than January 15. Please see the PA and
      UPP websites for complete academic program information and application
      procedures.

      To apply for the Award, applicants should also submit the following items
      to their selected academic program no later than January 15.

      1. A letter of application stating your full name, address, email address,

      and work and home telephone numbers.
      2. A brief statement of your proposed program of study and research.
      3. A brief statement identifying the CUPPA research center you think would

      best meet your educational and research objectives. (It is best to select
      one. If interested in more than one, rank by order of preference as 1st,
      2nd, 3rd, etc.)

      Award recipients will be selected by March 1. (The fellowship is available

      for fall semester only.) Those selected must notify their Program Director

      whether they intend to accept the award within three weeks of receiving an

      offer of support. Awardees will be invited to visit the campus to meet
      with
      CUPPA faculty, staff, and students. Travel expenses will be paid by the
      applicant's preferred academic program.
