Center for Engaged Scholarship Dissertation Fellowships

The Center for Engaged Scholarship (CES) is pleased to announce that the application process for this year’s fellowship awards is now available.  We are planning to award at least five fellowships of $25,000 each for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Our dissertation fellowships are for Ph.D. students in the social sciences whose work is of high quality and that has the potential to contribute to making U.S. society less unequal, more democratic, and more environmentally sustainable. The CES fellowship is intended for Ph.D. students writing their dissertations in academic departments and programs in the social sciences, including history, and social science-focused interdisciplinary programs; we will not accept applications this time from students in education, public health and social work programs.

We have a three-stage review of our fellowship applications to make sure that our awardees are doing excellent social science.  Last year’s finalists were evaluated by eleven different people and over one hundred and fifty social science academics were involved in this review process.

Application deadline is December 15, 2016.
