Dear SOCNET community,

As a quick reminder, the deadline for applying to fellowship to attend the
social networks and health workshop at Duke in May is in two weeks.  The
fellowship includes travel to Duke, lodging during the workshop, and around
$1,500 in research support for the research project proposed.

To answer a couple of FAQs:

   - We can only consider fellowship applications from US citizens or
   permanent residents.
   - We will provide more details about registering for the workshop as we
   get closer to the event.

Please feel free to share this widely with others who may be interested.
We hope to hear from you!
