Subject: [DIGITALDIVIDE] new doctoral fellowship program
Asia/Pacific/Africa/Latin Am


I hope this is not too much off topic, but here is an announcement of
a new doctoral fellowship program for people in Catholic communities
in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Our intent (I am one of
the members of the Study Commission who sponsors it) is to promote
work that could ease the digital divide.

Mary Hess


Announcement follows:

I'm pleased to be able to announce a call for applications for the first
International Catholic Research Fellowships in Media Religion and Culture.
The fellowship program is designed to further research in media, religion,
and
culture by offering fellowships for study at doctoral level at an approved
university to applicants from Catholic communities in Africa, Latin America
and Asia-Pacific.

The program is one of the outcomes of work being done by the International
Study Commission on Media Religion and Culture
http://www.jmcommunications.com/english/commission.html and will further the
type of research being done by the Commission. It is expected that a number
of fellowships will be offered each year over a four year period. The
fellowships will cover full tuition at the university, along with travel and
some other incidentals. As part of the program, it is planned to gather
fellows during the course of their study for seminars and consultations with
other scholars and with members of the Study Commission.

Applicants need to have the support of a home community, have the
qualifications and language requirements that make them eligible for entry
into a doctoral program, and propose an area of research that falls within
the terms of the research program and is of relevance to their region.
Applications for 2002 close on 31st July 2002.

Information about the fellowships, the research framework, processes and
application requirements are available at the Fellowship website
http://www.jmcommunications.com/fellowships/.

You are invited to help make this information as widely known as possible by
forwarding this email to relevant individuals, church or community leaders.
Help is sought particularly to distribute the information as widely as
possible through Catholic churches, communities and agencies in Africa,
Latin America and Asia-Pacific, where email communication may not be as
widely available nor accessed as in the west. Printed brochures for
individual information or for group distribution can be obtained by emailing
the Executive Secretary of the program, Adan Medrano at
adan at jmcommunications.com

Asunto: Nuevas becas para estudios doctorales

Tengo el gusto de anunciarles el llamado para solicitar la primera Beca
Internacional Católica para Investigación en Medios de Comunicación,
Religión, y Cultura.
El programa de becas tiene como objetivo profundizar la investigación en
medios de comunicación, religión y cultura ofreciendo becas de estudio a
nivel doctoral en una universidad aprobada por el Comité a miembros de
comunidades católicas en África, América Latina y el área del Pacífico de
Asia.

El programa es uno de los resultados del trabajo llevado a cabo por la
Comisión Internacional de Estudio en Medios de Comunicación, Religión y
Cultura
http://www.jmcommunications.com/english/commission.html y continuará el tipo
de investigación que actualmente lleva adelante la Comisión. Esperamos que
varias becas sean ofrecidas cada año durante un período de cuatro años. Las
becas cubrirán el costo total de la matrícula universitaria, además del
viaje y algunos otros gastos. Como parte del programa, se planea reunir a
los becarios durante el período de estudio para seminarios y consultas con
otros académicos y con miembros de la Comisión de Estudio.

Quienes soliciten la beca deberán contar con el apoyo de una comunidad
local, tener las aptitudes y el conocimiento de la lengua necesarios para
ingresar en un programa de doctorado, y proponer un área de investigación
que esté incluida dentro de los términos del programa de investigación y que
sea de utilidad para su región de origen.
Las solicitudes para el 2002 deberán ser enviadas antes del 31 de julio del
2002.

Más información sobre las becas, el marco de la investigación, el proceso y
requisitos para solicitar la beca, está disponible en el sitio web de las
Becas
http://www.jmcommunications.com/fellowships/.

Los invitamos a extender tanto como sea posible esta información reenviando
este mensaje a personas, iglesias y líderes de comunidades pertinentes.
Les pedimos ayuda para distribuir la información tanto como sea posible
especialmente en iglesias católicas, comunidades y organizaciones en África,
América Latina y el área del Pacífico de Asia, donde la comunicación por
correo electrónico puede no ser tan accesible como en occidente. Pueden
solicitar folletos impresos para información individual o para ser
distribuidos en grupos enviando un mensaje al Secretario Ejecutivo del
Programa, Adan Medrano,
adan at jmcommunications.com
