Utah State University Accepting Applications for Graduate Fellowship in Folklore

Friday, February 07, 2014   (0 Comments)

The Folklore Program at Utah State University is currently accepting applications for its Graduate Fellowship in Folklore. Since 2009, USU’s folklore program has annually offered one incoming graduate student a fellowship of $11,000. In addition to the Fellowship, recipients have the option of teaching in the English department, making a total compensation package of $20,000.00 for the first year of study.


Utah State University’s Folklore Program offers a Master’s Degree in American Studies with a concentration in Folklore. The program provides a flexible and interdisciplinary approach to study, small class sizes, student-centered faculty, and close interaction between faculty and students. Faculty specialize in the study of the supernatural, legend, landscape, digital folklore, ethnic folklore, medical folklore, and foodways. Faculty are well known in their field, have a strong program of research, and maintain a commitment to student learning.


Folklore students also work closely with the Fife Folklore Archives, which is the repository for the papers of the American Folklore Society as well as other significant collections such as the G. Malcolm Laws Ballad Collection and the Wayland D. Hand Collection of American Popular Belief and Superstition.
