FELLOWSHIP- 2006 Int'l. Dissertation Field Research Fellowship
The Social Science Research Council and the American Council of Learned
Societies are pleased to announce the 2006 competition of the International
Dissertation Field Research Fellowship (IDRF) program, which is 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, economics 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. Fellowships 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
Applications for the IDRF program 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 idrf at ssrc.org.
Deadline: November 10, 2005.
