This year’s program contains the following research fields, led by senior faculty spanning a variety of disciplines:
DPDF Fellows work with senior faculty to formulate effective dissertation proposals within the context of multidisciplinary research fields. Fellows attend workshops in the spring and fall of the fellowship cycle, which provide a framework for pre-dissertation research and guide dissertation proposal writing. In the summer months between workshops, DPDF fellows carry out exploratory field research on their topics to evaluate issues of feasibility and methods of investigation. The DPDF program covers necessary costs for workshop participation and up to $5,000 for summer research.
The Fellowship competition is open to second and third year graduate students in all disciplines of the humanities and social science who are enrolled full time in PhD programs at accredited universities in the United States. International fields are open to students enrolled in universities within countries of the international co-sponsoring organizations. For more information on eligibility, please visit our website.
