Stephen Sloan

The Stephen Sloan Terrorism Studies Fellowship

The Global Perspectives Office at UCF and the Global Connections Foundation will provide an opportunity for an outstanding UCF student, undergraduate (at least junior level) or graduate, to serve as a Terrorism Studies Fellow.

The selected student will work on a research project related to terrorism studies, under the direction of Global Perspectives Office staff and scholars, with the aim of producing a final paper that is worthy of publication. In addition, Terrorism Studies Fellows will contribute to the activities of the Global Perspectives Office and affiliated programs.

The weekly time commitment is approximately ten hours. Terrorism Studies Fellows will receive $500.00 for the semester. Students aspiring to become Terrorism Studies Fellows should have a minimum GPA of 3.5. A board of reviewers drawn from UCF and the community will evaluate applications and make selections. A one-page cover letter, a 5-10 page writing sample, an unofficial transcript and a resume with two listed references are required.

Supported by the Terrorism Studies Fund of the Global Connections Foundation, the purpose of the fellowship is to honor the work of Stephen Sloan, the Lawrence J. Chastang Distinguished Professor of Terrorism Studies at UCF, who is a pioneer in the field of terrorism studies and the author of several seminal books on terrorism, including Terrorism: The Present Threat in Context and the Historical Dictionary of Terrorism.

Fellowship Award: $500.00
