RENO — The University of Nevada, Reno College of Liberal Arts will receive a gift from the Bilinski Educational Foundation to fund dissertation-year fellowships for doctoral students in the humanities and social sciences. The $500,000 gift will create the Russell J. and Dorothy S. Bilinski Fellowship Fund for Land-Grant Liberal Arts Scholarship.

During the next three years, the fund will support 20 students during the year they anticipate completing their dissertations. The Bilinski fellowships will include a stipend and a modest travel allowance. The first fellowships will be awarded in the 2013-14 academic year.

There are currently about 225 students in eight doctoral programs in the humanities or social sciences: anthropology, Basque studies, English, history, political science, psychology, social psychology and judicial studies. All offer areas of emphasis that foster the University’s land-grant mission, and many are recognized nationally or internationally for their excellence.
