The Mellon Foundation Renews Support for a UIC-led Latino Doctoral Fellowship Program

The University of Illinois Chicago will continue its leadership of a fellowship program for doctoral students working in Latino humanities through a $950,000, three-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

UIC, in partnership with the Inter-University Program for Latino Research, or IUPLR, has overseen the IUPLR/UIC Dissertation Completion Mellon Fellowship program since 2014, when it received an initial $800,000 grant from Mellon. The latest grant for the initiative is the third overall from Mellon, whose total support surpasses $2.6 million.
