Urban Planning Doctoral Fellowship at the University of New Orleans

College of Urban and Public Affairs, University of New Orleans

Doctoral Fellowship Announcement

The College of Urban and Public Affairs has received funding

for two four-year fellowships for pursuit of the Ph.D. degree in Urban

Studies, with majors available in city planning, urban history, and

urban affairs. The fellowship provides a stipend of $14,000, payable

in 12 installments per year plus eligibility for in-state

tuition, and is renewable for up to four years.

I would like your help in locating superior students who

might be interested in this opportunity for support of their doctoral

studies. The diversity of our faculty, who have advanced degrees in

anthropology, city and regional planning, civil engineering, urban

history, landscape architecture, political science, public

administration, regional science, social policy, and urban geography,

allows students to pursue a variety of research interests. I hope you

will share it with students who are or might be considering

application to a doctoral program for the fall semester of 2002.

The University of New Orleans is a Carnegie Doc II institution

and the urban university of the Louisiana State University System.

Currently some 16,000 students are enrolled, including 3,900 in

graduate programs. Although our doctoral program is relatively new

(we enrolled our first students in 1990), we have graduated thirty-five

students with the Ph.D. degree and have fifty-five doctoral students

in residence. Our graduates have accepted positions with academic

institutions, government agencies, and the private sector.
