Urban Planning Doctoral Fellowship at the 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.
