WASHINGTON DOCTORAL INITIATIVE (WDI)
Are you interested in obtaining a doctorate from one of the most dynamic and innovative information schools in the U.S.? The UW Information School offers four-year doctoral fellowships via the Washington Doctoral Initiative (WDI), a unique opportunity to pursue doctoral work in information science. As many of you are aware, the iSchool is one of the top ranked Information Schools in the United States and was recently named one of the most prolific library and information science institutions by University Science Indicators.
In Autumn 2009, the iSchool will enroll three highly-qualified librarians from traditionally underrepresented groups to pursue a Ph.D. in Information Science. An Institute of Museum and Library Studies (IMLS) grant provides fellowships for full time study and will augment the student experience through an intensive mentoring program. For more information about this opportunity, please visit our website at http://depts.washington.edu/wdi.
