*CALL FOR APPLICATIONS*
The Center for Palestine Studies at Columbia University’s Middle East Institute is pleased to announce the 2012-2013 Ibrahim Abu-Lughod Award in Palestine Studies. This fellowship seeks to recognize and foster innovative scholarship on issues related to Palestine and Palestinians.
The international competition is open to all post-doctoral scholars who share the mission of the Center for Palestine Studies to advance the production and circulation of knowledge on Palestinian history, culture, society, and politics through outstanding scholarship. The one-semester fellowship at Columbia carries a stipend of $25,000 and the status of post-doctoral research fellow or visiting scholar, as appropriate.
This award has been made possible through the generosity of Abdel Mohsin Al-Qattan in honor of his friend, the Palestinian scholar and intellectual, Ibrahim Abu-Lughod (1929-2001). Their close friendship began in the aftermath of the *nakbah *of 1948 and evolved into a shared commitment to justice for Palestinians to be realized in part through support for excellence in higher education and scholarship.
Application deadline is *February 3, 2012*. More details and application information for 2012-2013 are available on the CPS Fellowship page<http://www.columbia.edu/cu/palestine/about/fellowships.html>
