|Re:||Scholarship Opportunity - International Dissertation
Field Research Fellowship Program|
The Social Science Research Council and the American Council of
Learned Societies announce the 2006 competition of the
International Dissertation Field Research Fellowship program,
designed to support distinguished graduate students in the
humanities and social sciences conducting dissertation field
research in all areas and regions of the world. Fifty
fellowships of approximately $20,000 will be awarded in 2006 with
funds provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The IDRF program is committed to scholarship that advances
knowledge about cultures, societies, aesthetics, economies and/or
polities outside the United States. The program promotes work
that is relevant to a particular discipline while resonating across
other fields and area specializations.
• The program is open to full-time graduate students in the
humanities and social sciences – regardless of citizenship –
enrolled in doctoral programs in the United States.
• Applicants must have completed all Ph.D. requirements except
fieldwork and dissertation by the time the fellowship begins or by
December 2006, whichever comes first.
• Fellowship will provide support for nine to twelve months in
the field, plus travel expenses. The fellowship must be held
for a single continuous period within the eighteen months between
July 2006 and December 2007.
Applications must be submitted electronically using the SSRC’s
Online Application Portal. For detailed information on
application procedures, visit the IDRF website at www.ssrc.org/programs/idrf
or contact program staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application
deadline is November 10, 2005.
