The Social Science Research Council’s Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship assists graduate students in preparing dissertation and funding proposals for research that will contribute to the development of interdisciplinary fields in the humanities and social sciences. Fellows participate in two proposal preparation workshops and receive up to $5,000 in support of research during the summer of 2011. The fellowship competition is open to all second and third-year graduate students in any discipline of the social sciences and humanities who are currently enrolled full time in a PhD program at an accredited university in the United States, and whose research projects and dissertation proposals fit within one of the five research fields selected annually. The deadline for applications is 6 p.m. January 28, 2011. See the fellowship page online for more information and instructions on how to apply.
