Warmest congratulations to our 2021 MIP fellows!

Please join us in congratulating the 2021 recipients of the Master's & Internship (MIP) Graduate Fellowship:

Ergisa Bejkollari
Kristiana Dhima
Kris Hudhra
Elona Mraja
Rei Naçe
Besjon Tanuzi

These remarkable fellows were selected from nearly 90 applicants for the fellowship this year. They will receive full funding to complete their master's studies in the U.S. beginning September 2021.

The program is funded by Funded by the Albanian – American Development Foundation (AADF) and the Biberaj Foundation.

MIP fellows are placed at U.S. universities that match their academic goals, provide outstanding support to international students, and meet the budgetary requirements of the MIP Program. Students receive living stipends, insurance, and ongoing logistical support from American Councils staff throughout their time in the U.S. The program starts with a Beginning of Program Conference at the AADF office in Tirana during the summer prior to departure.

We had many outstanding applications for the 2021 graduate fellowship awards! If you applied this year but did not receive funding, we hope you will consider applying next year. Please continue to check here for updates and details.

Warmest congratulations to our 2021 MIP fellows!
