US Fish & Wildlife Service - Fellowships for Students

The Directorate Resource Assistant Fellows Program (DFP) is a new fellowship program in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The DFP is designed to provide a fellowship opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to participate full time for at least 11 weeks on projects that meet the qualification of a rigorous internship program.

Participation in the DFP will offer the selected Fellows an opportunity to demonstrate to supervisors and managers their potential for success in an administrative or professional career field in the Service. Management may directly hire a DFP Fellow who has successfully completed the fellowship program and requirements for his or her degree program.

SAH/Mellon Author Awards Available

Deadline: Jun 1, 2014

Is your first scholarly book manuscript currently under contract with a university press? Will your book focus on the history of the built environment? If you answered yes to both, you may be eligible for funding to help pay for your illustrations.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 SAH/Mellon Author Awards. Funded through a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH), the award is designed to provide financial relief to scholars who are publishing their first monograph on the history of the built environment and who are responsible for paying for rights and permissions for images or for commissioning maps, charts or line drawings in their publications. The purpose of the award is to help defray the high costs of image licensing, reproduction and creation of original drawings and maps for monographs on the history of the built environment.

Awards will be made once in 2014 and once in 2015 for print (hardcover, soft cover) and digital publications (eBook, DVD). Awardees will be selected on the basis of the quality and demonstrated financial need for their project.

Successful applicants will be first-time book authors who are under contract with a publisher for a manuscript on the history of the built environment. For more information on the SAH/Mellon Author Awards, please visit
