Persian Studies Graduate Program
From its inception, Roshan Institute for Persian Studies has supported graduate education, especially at the PhD level, at UMD through partnership with various departments and collaboration with the Graduate School.
Applicants are selected by individual admission committees in the discipline to which they have applied (i.e. Women’s Studies, History, Comparative Literature, and Theatre). Roshan Institute then partners with the respective department offering partial Roshan fellowship and expert academic advice. The result of this rigorous selection process, in-depth advising, and financial support has been a great record of job placement for these fellows.
