The Mellichamp Faculty Cluster “21st Century Global Dynamics” Graduate Research Summer Fellowships provide a stipend of $7,500 to Ph.D. students in the humanities and social sciences. Fellows work under the direction of a Mellichamp Professor, providing support for research in one of the cluster’s four areas of emphasis: gender and Islam, human rights, political economy, and media & culture.
