Nibley Fellowship Application Deadline, Guidelines
Each year at about this time we remind graduate students about the Nibley Fellowship Program. Those interested in applying for the first time or who wish to renew their fellowships for the 2002/ 2003 academic year must do so by 30 June 2002.
According to new guidelines recently approved by the Institute's board, successful candidates must be enrolled in accredited Ph.D. programs in areas of study directly related to the work and mission of the Institute, particularly work done under the name of FARMSstudies of the Book of Mormon, the Book of Abraham, the Old and New Testaments, early Christianity, ancient temples, and related subjects. Applicants cannot be employed at the Institute or be related to an Institute employee.
