Ottenberg-Winans Fellowship Fund, African Studies Program

Deadline: April 5, 2013

The Ottenberg-Winans  Fellowship fund was established to honor the contributions of Professors Simon  Ottenberg and Edgar V. Winans to the African Studies Program at the University of Washington as well as to recognize their contributions of the field of African Studies. During their distinguished careers, Professors Ottenberg and  Winans taught and mentored numerous students and made important contributions to  scholarship on Africa. The fellowship honors these contributions by supporting University of Washington undergraduate and graduate student research in Africa  and by supporting students from universities in Africa who attend University of  Washington as part of various exchange programs.

Eligible students may be  enrolled in any undergraduate, graduate or professional school at the University of Washington. For UW students traveling to Africa, the fellowship can be used to support travel and related  expenses, living expenses, and research materials. For students from African universities  visiting or studying at UW, fellowship funds can be used to support these types  of expenses as well as course materials or other expenses related to attending  the University of Washington.  Multiple fellowships are expected to be awarded for amounts up to  $1000.
