The Franklin College-University of Liverpool Doctoral Student Short-Term International Research Fellowship is open to Ph.D. students in any discipline in Franklin college.

Successful applicants will travel to the University of Liverpool, UK, in May, 2014, during UL’s Summer Term but after the end of Spring Semester at UGA. Ph.D. students from UL will travel to UGA in the month of April, when the University of Liverpool is on Easter Break and UGA’s Spring Semester is in session.
