Dear Graduate Students,
I am writing on behalf of the IDRF program.  The Social Science Research Council and the American Council of Learned Societies are pleased to announce the 2009 competition of the International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) program, which is designed to support graduate students in the humanities and social sciences who are conducting dissertation research outside of the United States . Seventy-five fellowships of approximately $20,000 will be awarded in 2009, 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 situated 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 2009, 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 2009 and December 2010.


For more detailed information on application procedures and eligibility requirements, please visit the IDRF website at 


Deadline: November 5, 2008.
