Dissertation Fellowships Humanities
A special committee of scholars in the humanities, archivists, and special collections librarians selects fellowship recipients.
The committee includes representatives from different fields of the humanities and related social sciences, reflecting the variety of fields represented in the research proposals.
Contact David Aragoni, A&S Scholarship Coordinator and Analyst with questions.
The 2019 deadline for submission of all materials is TBD.
Each fellowship comes with a monthly stipend (50% GPTI equivalent, tuition remission (five dissertation hours only), fees, and medical insurance for the academic year.
Students may not engage in other forms of paid employment (working, teaching, or off-campus employment) during the time they receive a Dissertation Fellowship.
Instead, any graduate student who meets the qualifications may nominate themselves.
A quick snippet (bold emphasis ours): "One of the first things graduate students should consider doing early on is applying for grants—even if you receive full financial support in your program.
The committee assesses quality with reference to the following criteria: Fellows may propose to work in more than one repository during the fellowship period, including repositories abroad.
Preference is given to applicants working away from their home institutions.
Recipients will be asked to submit a letter notifying the Dean’s Office of the completion of their dissertation.
