For the past five years the Telluride Association has supported an international exchange program between several departments at Cornell University and Central European University. Representatives from each institution spend an academic year at the partner institution. CEU students from all departments who hold an undergraduate degree are formally eligible for the Reese Miller International Exchange Scholarship, but it is effectively aimed at PhD students who have already passed their comprehensive exams. Applicants must be pursuing dissertation projects which are in some way suitable for the following Cornell departments that participate in this exchange program: History, Medieval Studies, City and Regional Planning, and Cornell Institute of Public Affairs. The deadline for submitting the application is 18 January 2013. For further information concerning the application form and financial matters, please see the Telluride web site:
