For those who know promising undergraduates, masters students, and others who work at the intersection of religion and politics or religion and foreign policy, and who are interested in pursuing a PhD (despite all the usual caveats and warnings), there is a new fully-funded program for them to consider. The William P. Clements Department of History at Southern Methodist University has recently announced new graduate student and doctoral fellowships in the history of the presidency, American politics and foreign policy. Working primarily through SMU's Center for Presidential History, and under the guidance of Professors Jeffrey Engel and Thomas Knock, admitted students are eligible for up to five years of full funding, including generous living and research stipends. For more details see the full-sized version of the flyer after the break.
