Western Historical Quarterly Milner/ Butler Fellowship(2014-11-20)

Clyde A. Milner II and Anne M. Butler Editorial Fellowship
Graduate Student Fellowships at the Western Historical Quarterly

For 2015-2016, a total stipend of $14,000, tuition awards, health insurance, and summer research funds will be awarded.

The Editorial Fellow must enroll in USU's master's program in history. Duties at the Western Historical Quarterly (WHQ) include 20 hours a week, beginning in August, helping to select, prepare, and copyedit manuscripts. The fellowship may be retained for a second year (2016-17) depending upon satisfactory progress toward the master's degree and acceptable completion of editorial assignments. During the summer of 2016, the editorial fellow will work 20 hours a week at the WHQ, with time off for research.

Applicants should send a letter of interest and a writing sample directly to the editor of the WHQ. The full graduate school application, including three letters of recommendation to the USU School of Graduate Studies, will suffice to complete the needed materials. All documents should be postmarked no later than 1 February 2015. Applicants will be notified by early March.

NOTE: The Clyde A. Milner II /Anne M. Butler Fellowship joins the Charles S. Peterson, S. George Ellsworth, and Robert M. Utley Editorial Fellowship awarded in rotating years by the WHQ.

Funding for WHQ fellowships is provided by: Western Historical Quarterly, USU Department of History, S. George Ellsworth Fellowship Fund, Clyde A. Milner II / Anne M. Butler Fellowship Fund, Charles S. and Elizabeth H. Peterson Graduate Fund, Robert M. Utley Fellowship Fund.
