Wayne Morse Center Announces 2010-11 Fellows, Resident Scholars, Project Grants
The Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics recently announced the names of its 2010-11 Law Fellows, Dissertation Fellows, Resident Scholars, and Project Grant recipients.
Law Student Fellowships support law students who want to follow in the tradition of Senator Wayne Morse, who also was dean of Oregon Law. Fellowships are awarded on the basis of academic merit and demonstrated interest in the principles and issues that inspired Morse, including public service, fair labor practices, representative government, and civil rights.
Dissertation Fellowships are awarded, with the support of the Graduate School, to two graduate students while they conduct research and write dissertations related to the Wayne Morse Center theme or the Politics and Policy program.
Resident Scholars help frame the theme of inquiry, advise the center on thematic programs and the program on Politics and Policy, and work on academic writings.
Project Grants are awarded each year to support community organizations, university faculty and departments, and student organizations. Awards are given to projects that stimulate and support educational events related to the center’s current or upcoming theme of inquiry. Past awards have provided funding for new courses, conferences, symposia, community events, student projects, and youth education.
