Subject: Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships


Dear Dr. Kelly:

I'm writing with a reminder that your doctoral students may be eligible to apply for a Eugene Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship from the Beta Phi Mu Honor Society. As you may know, these fellowships provide US$3,000.00 support for a student at the dissertation-writing phase of their degree program, with a focus on library and information science, information studies, informatics, and related fields. The deadline for this year’s awards is March 15, 2017.

More information and a link to the application for this award can be found here:   I have also attached a copy of a flyer suitable for posting or sharing via a listserv. Could you please help get the word out about this generous award to your potentially eligible students?

Many thanks,

Alison Lewis
