Hi, David,

I got your blog address through AIR-list. I read about the psot for a fellowship scholar in your college. I didn't understand very much if it is a Master research program or a Doctorate. I am a Master student. My project is relatted to Hypertext, digital divide and education. I thouht It was somehow related to your media studies, but I guess I was wrong.
please, let me know.

Well, I'm not David, but I would assume the dissertation fellowship is for PhD students who will be on their last year during 2007-2008.

Now the question I have is... is it open to students of other universities or just there in SF? Would people from another place then move to SF for their final year?

hello hiperleitura e escrita! yes, the dissertation fellowship is for a student writing a phd dissertation rather than a master's thesis.

hey mark, good to hear from you! the dissertation fellowship in media studies is open to students outside of USF; we don't have a phd program in media studies here at USF.
