The Simpson Scholarships in Egyptology are available to Study Abroad Program students who wish to concentrate their studies at the American University in Cairo on the history and culture of Ancient Egypt. The scholarships are open to outstanding undergraduates of junior or senior standing who have little or no background in Egyptology, as well as for those who have already begun formal study of Ancient Egypt or the ancient world. Up to five scholarships per semester are granted. Students may use the award as they wish to defray the expense of study at AUC. However, it is expected that the scholarships will first be applied toward the payment of all applicable AUC tuition and fees.

The Simpson Scholarship consists of an award of $2500 for one semester of full-time, non-degree undergraduate study in the Study Abroad Program at AUC. Interested students may apply for either:

  1. A scholarship of $2500 for study in the fall semester, or
  2. A scholarship of $2500 for study in the spring semester; or
  3. A scholarship of $5000 for study for an academic year of two consecutive semesters.

Applications for the Simpson Scholarship are open to students of all nationalities who are of junior or senior standing in a college or university outside of Egypt at the time they apply. Candidates must maintain their status as degree-seeking undergraduates at their home university while attending AUC. Applicants for Simpson Scholarships must have applied for admission to AUC's Study Abroad Program at AUC and have been accepted in order to be eligible for consideration.

Asian Cultural Council Fellowships
November

http://www.asianculturalcouncil.org/

The Asian Cultural Council supports cultural exchange between Asia and the United States in the performing and visual arts, primarily by providing individual fellowship grants to artists, scholars, students, and specialists from Asia for study, research, travel and creative work in the United States. Some grants are also awarded to Americans engaged in similar activities in Asia and to arts organizations and educational institutions for specific projects of particular significance to Asian-American cultural exchange. In addition, the Council awards a small number of grants in support of regional exchange activities within Asia.

The ACC's geographic purview covers an extensive area of Asia ranging from Afghanistan to Japan. Because the Council's grant funds are limited, however, priority consideration is currently being given to applicants from that area of Southeast and East Asia extending eastward from Myanmar through Japan.

Grants are made in the following fields: archaeology, architecture (design, theory, and history), art history, art and architectural conservation, crafts, dance, film, museology, music, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, theater, and video.

Asian Art and Religion Fellowship Program
This fellowship program focusing on the relationship between the artistic and religious traditions of Asia was established with an endowment gift from Laurance S. Rockefeller. The program enables American scholars, specialists, and artists to conduct research and undertake projects in Asia involving the interdisciplinary analysis of religion and the arts.

The Council awards up to five research fellowships or travel grants each year through this program. Asian Art and Religion Fellowships have supported research in India on the iconography of Hindu deities, in Indonesia on the relationship between tantric religious thought and masked performance, and in Thailand on Buddhist architecture of northern Thailand.

Humanities Fellowship Program
Intended primarily to support American scholars and graduate students, the Council's Humanities Fellowship Program was initiated with a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and matching funds from The JDR 3rd Fund and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The program assists American scholars, doctoral students, and specialists in the humanities to undertake research, training, and study in Asia in the following fields: archaeology; conservation; museology; and the theory, history, and criticism of architecture, art, dance, film, music, photography, and theater.

Fellowship grants range in duration from one to nine months. The program also supports American and Asian scholars participating in international conferences, exhibitions, visiting professorships, and similar projects.

Japan-United States Arts Program
The Japan-United States Arts Program of the ACC provides grants to individuals and institutions in Japan and the United States for exchange activities that encourage the study and understanding of Japanese art and culture. This program is made possible with funds contributed by the Seibu Saison Group and provided to the ACC through an endowment gift from the Japan Foundation. Since 1989, the Saison Foundation has contributed annual supplementary funding for the program, and additional support is provided through the ACC's Blanchette H. Rockefeller Fellowship Fund in Japan.

Individual fellowship grants enable Japanese artists, scholars, and specialists to travel to the United States for research, observation, and creative work and allow their American counterparts to visit Japan for similar purposes. The Council also provides limited assistance for performances, exhibitions, and other projects of unusual importance for the development of Japanese-American cultural exchange. In 2005, the program supported thirteen individuals and fourteen institutional projects.

Philippines Fellowship Program
The Philippines Fellowship Program of the Asian Cultural Council was formally inaugurated in 2000 in association with the ACC Philippines Foundation, a new foundation established in Manila to collaborate with the ACC in raising funds and making grants for Philippines-U.S. cultural exchange. Through the ACC Philippines Foundation a range of donors in both countries are contributing to the Philippines Fellowship Program, which emphasizes support for artists, scholars, and specialists from the Philippines undertaking research, study, and creative work in the United States. Some grants are also made to Americans pursuing similar activities in the Philippines and to institutions engaged in Philippines-U.S. or Philippines-Asia exchange projects.

http://www.dowjones.com/djcom/careers/bartley-interns.asp

Throughout his 30 years as The Wall Street Journal's Editorial Page Editor, Bob Bartley inspired principled and original thinking that changed and shaped the society in which we all live. He also devoted attention to teaching and motivating talented young people, many of whom have gone on to careers in journalism at the Journal and elsewhere. The Bartley fellowships are consistent with that legacy.

Bob Bartley achieved many honors during his long tenure here including a Pulitzer Prize and, shortly before his death in December 2003, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In awarding that medal, President Bush cited Bob as "one of the most influential journalists in American history." The Robert L. Bartley fellowships will help to perpetuate not just Bob's memory but above all the principles and priorities to which he devoted his distinguished career.

The fellowships, consisting of paid internships of one to six months, will be provided to young thinkers and writers whose views are broadly consistent with Bob Bartley's philosophy and who aspire to careers in journalism. Applicants should be beginning journalists, upperclassmen or graduate students with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspapers or elsewhere. It is essential that they be familiar with, and interested in, the ideas for which the Journal editorial page stands. As many as five fellows will be selected each year through an application process that will be judged by senior members of our editorial board. Fellows will work as writers and editors on the Journal's opinion pages—editorial, op-ed, Leisure & Arts—in the U.S., Europe or Asia.


Responsibilities

Bartley Fellows will assist in researching and writing editorials, editing op-ed articles, editing Leisure & Arts page features, and editing letters to the editor for the Journal and our Web site, OpinionJournal.com.


When does the program start?

Start and finish dates are flexible, though we anticipate that most Fellows will work during the summer months. The fellowship usually begins in June and runs through the end of August, although some run up to six months.
