Associate Professor

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.

opportunities, contact: Associate Dean, College of Information Studies,
