Russell J. and Dorothy S. Bilinski Dissertation Fellowship Program

Beginning in Fall 2013, through a generous grant to the College of Arts & Sciences from the Bilinski Education Foundation, doctoral students in the humanities and social sciences will have the opportunity to compete for fellowships to help support their scholarship/research during their dissertation years.

Students are nominated by their departments / programs for these prestigious fellowships.

About the Bilinski Educational Foundation

Russell and Dorothy Bilinski were true intellectuals, as well as being adventuresome, independent and driven. They believed in people being self-sufficient, ambitious and above all responsible. Russell was a researcher, academician and an entrepreneur. Dorothy was an accomplished artist and patron of the arts. They died leaving a significant gift in the formation of the Bilinski Educational Foundation. They believed that education was a means to obtain independence and this is the legacy they wished to pass on to others.
