The Peter Lyman Graduate Fellowship in New Media, established in the memory of an esteemed UC Berkeley faculty member, provides a summer stipend to a UC Berkeley Ph.D. candidate to support the writing of his or her Ph.D. dissertation on a topic related to New Media.

Some preference will be given to those doing research related to children and youth, and to BCNM Designated Emphasis students. Originality and quality of the research are the primary criteria. The amount of the stipend depends on the size of the fund. In Summer 2013 the fellowship amount will be $5,000.00.

Any UC Berkeley Ph.D. candidate who has passed the Qualifying Exam and is in good standing can apply. Applications must include a one-page research summary, brief reference from the student’s Research Advisor, list of the Ph.D. Committee, expected completion date, and student’s full contact information. Applications will be reviewed by a faculty committee from the Berkeley Center for New Media. The Peter Lyman Fellow will be announced in early March of each year.

Applications must be received by February 11, 2013 and should be submitted to the BCNM Student Affairs Officer: Nora Liddell at nora.bcnm [​at​]
