International Dissertation Research Fellowship
Deadline: November 1, 2006
The Social Science Research Council and the American Council of
Learned Societies announce the 2007 competition of the INTERNATIONAL
DISSERTATION RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP (IDRF) program designed to support
distinguished graduate students in the humanities and social sciences
conducting dissertation research outside the United States. Fifty
fellowships of approximately $20,000 will be awarded in 2007 with funds
provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The IDRF program is committed to scholarship that advances knowledge
about non-U.S. cultures and societies grounded in empirical and
site-specific research (involving fieldwork, research in archival or
manuscript collections, or quantitative data collection). The program
promotes research that is at once located in a specific
discipline and geographical region and is engaged with
interdisciplinary and cross-regional perspectives.
Applicants must have completed all Ph.D. requirements except on-site
dissertation research by the time the fellowship begins or by
December 2007, whichever comes first. Fellowships will provide
support for nine to twelve months of dissertation research. The
fellowship must be held for a single continuous period within the
eighteen months between July 2007 and December 2008.
For more detailed information on application procedures and
eligibility requirements, visit the IDRF website at

idrf at ssrc.org.
