Comparative Literature Graduate Student Michael Pifer was awarded the post-doctoral fellowship by the Manoogian Foundation. This fellowship is a part of the Armenian Studies Program at U-M. The purpose of the post-doctoral fellowships is to offer research and teaching opportunities to candidates who have been awarded Ph.D.s during the past three years. Post-doctoral fellows will be asked to participate in ASP sponsored events, to present two public lectures, and to teach one course per semester or one course per year. Post-doctoral fellowships may be awarded for one academic semester or one academic year to recent graduates whose dissertations are closely related to Armenian studies. The scope and number of fellowships awarded is contingent upon the availability of funds. Congratulations, Michael!
