NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program  (GRFP)


The American Council of Learned Societies is launching this year a new fellowship program providing support for young scholars to complete their dissertation and, later, to advance their research after being awarded the Ph.D. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation/ACLS Early Career Fellowship Program will award fellowships in two categories: Dissertation Completion Fellowships and Fellowships for Recent Doctoral Recipients. For more information go to http://www.acls.org/ecfguide.htm

The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation is inviting applications from Ph.D. students for the following dissertation fellowships. The Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowship in Women’s Studies (www.woodrow.org/womens-studies) offers awards for candidates doing original and significant research about women that crosses disciplinary, regional, or cultural boundaries. The Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships (www.woodrow.org/newcombe) support the final year of work on Ph.D. dissertations dealing with ethical or religious values in fields across the humanities and social sciences.
