2009/2010 PhD Student Fellowships and Research Assistantships

Ph.D. Student Fellowships and Research Assistantships
Urban and Public Affairs

The Ph.D. Program in Urban and Public Affairs at the University of Louisville offers a number of Fellowships and Research Assistantships each year to new students. Applications are now being accepted for students who intend to begin study during the Fall Semester 2009. Both Fellowships and Research Assistantships offer annual stipends of US$19,000 plus tuition remission, health insurance, office space, and computer and IT support. Research assistants are required to work for 20 hours per week for a supervisor who is a member of the faculty of the Ph.D. Program, while fellows are exempt from that requirement for the first two years of study. Support is available for up to four years.

Students may focus their studies in the areas of (1) Urban Planning and Development or (2) Urban Policy and Administration. Assistantships provide an excellent opportunity for students to collaborate on research projects with faculty supervisors in their areas of interest.

Admissions requirements include a master’s degree and Graduate Record Examination scores. For additional information about the School of Urban and Public Affairs, the Ph.D. Program, application for admission, and application for fellowships and assistantships, please see Further information about the University of Louisville may be found at

For best consideration, applications should be complete by 31 January 2009, although assistantships may be available to later applicants. Questions may be addressed to Mr. Yani Vozos, Graduate Student Advisor, at or +1 502 852 8002.
