SSRC Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship – Deadline is soon!

January 12, 2012

The SSRC offers a Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship, which funds early-stage grad students in the humanities and social sciences and helps them develop their dissertation proposals. Fellows will attend two workshops and conduct summer research. “The spring workshop prepares students to undertake summer preliminary research that will inform the design of more robust dissertation research in the future. The fall workshop helps students apply their summer research experiences to writing both dissertation and funding proposals. Students may apply for up to $5,000 to cover summer research costs. Travel and accommodations to attend both workshops are covered by the DPDF Program.

Applicants need not be US citizens. Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a PhD program in the humanities or social sciences and should just be beginning to design their research proposals.

Research Fields
Different fields are funded each year. This year, the fields are as follows:
Ecological history
Gender Justice in the Era of Human Rights
Governing Global Production
Mediated Futures: Globalization and Historical Territories
New Approaches to Transnationalism and Migratory Circulation

Application deadline: February 1, 2012
