Hi Eliza,

 

Bellevue Uni, Omaha, Nebraska is full of Nepalese. That is the mostly Nepalese populated university in USA I think. I remember someone told me, when you are in Omaha, you feel you are in Kathmandu. Having said that, I am sure your friend will easily find many Nepalese friends once she land there.

 

If you still want someone contactable before flying, let us know, we may be able to help.

 

thanks

Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship 2008

 

The Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (DPDF) is a

strategic fellowship program designed to help graduate students in

the humanities and social sciences formulate doctoral dissertation

proposals that are intellectually pointed, amenable to completion in

a reasonable time frame, and competitive in fellowship

competitions. Funding for the program is provided by the Andrew W.

Mellon Foundation. Graduate students in the early phase of their

research, generally 2nd and 3rd years, apply to one of five research

fields led by the two directors. Graduate student fellows

participate in two workshops, one in the late spring that helps

prepare them to undertake predissertation research on their topics;

and one in the early fall, designed to help them synthesize their

summer research and to draft proposals for dissertation funding.

DPDF Fellows are eligible to apply for up to $5000 from the SSRC to

support predissertation research during the summer.

 

Applications for and information about the DPDF program, including

criteria and eligibility for prospective fellows and research

Summer Fellows on Democracy and Development Stanford University, US

 

Finaid: travel, accommodation, living expenses, and visa costs are

covered for some applicants

Date: July 28 - August 15 2008

Deadline: January 9, 2008

Open to: mid-career policymakers, academics, and leaders of civil

society organizations

 

The Stanford Summer Fellows on Democracy and Development Program

(SSFDD) is a three-week executive education program that is run

annually on the Stanford campus by an interdisciplinary team of

Stanford faculty. In 2008, the program will run from July 28 -

August 15.

 

The program brings together a group of approximately 30 civic,

political, and economic leaders from transitioning countries such as

Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, China, and Russia. Stanford

Summer Fellows are former prime ministers and presidential advisers,

senators and attorneys general, journalists and civic activists,

academics and members of the international development community.

Since the program was introduced in 2005, we have typically received

more than 800 applications each year.

 

Participants: Eligibility Criteria

This program is aimed at early to mid-career policymakers,

academics, and leaders of civil society organizations (such as

representatives of trade unions, nongovernmental organizations, the

media, business and professional associations) who will play

important roles in their country's political, economic, and social

development. We anticipate recruiting a group of 25-30 individuals

dedicated to democracy, development and rule of law promotion within

their home countries (particularly in, but not limited to, the

regions of the Middle East, Northern and Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia,

and former Soviet Union).

 

Successful applicants will be proficient in spoken and written

English and will have academic and practical credentials necessary

to benefit fully from the course and actively contribute to

programmatic discussions. The ideal course participant will have

extraordinary motivation, at least three to five years of experience

in a relevant field of democratic development, and a keen interest

in learning and sharing knowledge and experiences in transforming

his or her country.

 

Funding

Stanford will pay travel, accommodation, living expenses, and visa

costs for the duration of the three-week program for a certain

portion of applicants. Where possible, applicants are encouraged to

supply some or all of their own funding from their current employers

or international nongovernmental organizations.

 

Application Process

CDDRL will accept applications for the 2008 Stanford Summer Fellows

programs beginning October 15, 2007 and ending January 9, 2008.

Application decisions will be available no later than the first week

of March, 2008.
