DACOR Bacon House Foundation Fellowship

Jump to Comments

Dear Students,

The Monterey Institute has been selected to participate in the DACOR Bacon House Foundation’s fellowship program for the academic year 2012-2013. This prestigious fellowship program is offered to students from ten schools per year on a rotating basis. One student per school will be selected. Fellowships are exclusively for tuition costs for the academic year 2012-2013 and will carry a stipend up to $10,000 for the year ($5,000 per semester).


Fellowships are awarded to encourage and assist American students in advanced study of international affairs at recognized institutions of higher learning in the United States. Students must be US citizens. The awards are made primarily on the basis of academic excellence. Three students will be nominated by the school through an on-campus review process. In addition, interviews will be held by the coordinators of the fellowship program to determine the final choice from among the three candidates the school nominates to compete for the fellowship.


To apply, please submit the following documents electronically to Jen Holguin (jhamblet@miis.edu) by no later than December 5th, 2011 at 5PM (no exceptions will be made to this deadline):


1) A curriculum vitae* which includes your date of birth and citizenship;

2) A transcript of your academic record at the Monterey Institute and at any other institution of higher learning that you may have attended (undergraduate or graduate level);

3) An essay of approximately 600 words prepared by each nominee, expanding on the information provided in the resume, as appropriate, and covering such matters as special academic or other accomplishments, work experience, experience related to international affairs (e.g. foreign travel, foreign study, competence in foreign languages), career objectives and any other matters pertinent to the nominee’s qualifications.


*A note on curricula vitae:

When should job seekers use a curriculum vitae, commonly referred to as CV, rather than a resume? In the United States, a curriculum vitae is used primarily when applying for academic, education, scientific or research positions. It is also applicable when applying for fellowships or grants.


The Differences between a Resume and a CV


There are several differences between a curriculum vitae and a resume. A curriculum vitae is a longer (up to two or more pages), more detailed synopsis of your background and skills. A CV includes a summary of your educational and academic backgrounds as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations and other details. As with a resume, you may need different versions of a CV for different types of positions.


Like a resume, a curriculum vitae should include your name, contact information, education, skills and experience. In addition to the basics, a CV includes research and teaching experience, publications, grants and fellowships, professional associations and licenses, awards and other information relevant to the position you are applying for. Start by making a list of all your background information, then organize it into categories. Make sure you include dates on all the publications you include.
