As coordinator of the PhD program in the College of Information Studies at Drexel University, I am pleased to distribute the following announcement of the availability of fellowships to support doctoral research. Katherine W. McCain Associate Professor College of Information Studies Drexel University Philadelphia, PA 19104 _ANNOUNCEMENT_ Drexel University's College of Information Studies has received a $118,400 grant from the U.S. Department of Education to fund doctoral fellowships. The fellowships will provide complete tuition remission and stipends for up to eight full-time doctoral students during the period September 1992 to September 1993. The college will select the recipients from among newly applying students and those currently enrolled. Individuals may apply for a fellowship by enclosing a letter of request with their application to the college's doctoral program. A fellowship will cover tuition and fees, as well as provide a $6,400 stipend for the period September to June, and a $1,000 stipend for the following summer quarter (summer enrollment is optional). Fellowships may be renewable, depending on a student's academic performance and the availability of further federal funding. Through its fellowship grants, the Department of Education seeks to increase excellence in library education by encouraging study of the principles and practices of library and information science at the doctoral level. Such study may include investigations of the collection, organization, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information; the design, management and evaluation of libraries and information centers; and the use and users of information centers and their resources.
