Dear Colleagues,

Please forward this message and attachment to your iSchool faculty and doctoral students regarding the iFellows Doctoral Fellowship Program.

The pre-proposal deadline for 2014 iFellows is July 31, 2014 at midnight. Five fellows will be selected in 2014 and another five will be selected in 2015 in a two part selection process involving pre-proposals and full proposals from highest ranked pre-proposals.
