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 
www.ssrc.org/programs/idrf or contact program staff at 
idrf at ssrc.org.
