CIEE Ping Doctoral Research Fellowships are back!

I’m very happy to learn that CIEE is offering the Ping Doctoral Research Fellowships again!  Following is a brief description of the Ping Fellowship that I copied and pasted from the February 16, 2011 CIEE News I received via e-mail.

CIEE is pleased, once again, to offer the Ping Doctoral Research Fellowships, providing support for doctoral research focused on U.S. undergraduate study abroad.

We invite Directors of Graduate Studies (or in the absence of a departmental DGS, a Chair) to nominate a qualified doctoral candidate for a Ping Fellowship. These Fellowships, funded through a small endowment, are named after Dr. Charles Ping, President Emeritus of Ohio University and a long-time former Chairman of the CIEE Board of Directors. 

During the 2011-2012 academic year, CIEE will provide up to two $20,000 Ping Doctoral Research Fellowships to outstanding doctoral candidates. Please visit the CIEE website for details about eligibility, requirements, and the nomination of candidates.

Thank you for letting interested parties know about the Ping Doctoral Research Fellowships, and for nominating qualified doctoral candidates. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Mick VandeBerg at

  1. Hello:

    This is really a fantastic opportunity and support of doctoral research. As I prepare to begin my dissertation, financial considerations have been a concern as to the width and breath of my research. I will definitely apply and alert my fellow colleagues to this research fellowship.
