Apply for a Dissertation Fellowship by November 30

Nov 20, 2017

The application deadline for the Dissertation Fellowship Program is less than two weeks away.

Introduced in 2014, the program is designed to support doctoral candidates who are writing their dissertations. Ten fellowships of $10,000 each will be awarded in 2018.

To be eligible, applicants must be an active Phi Kappa Phi member in the dissertation writing stage of doctoral study. All pre-dissertation requirements should be met by the November 30 deadline including approval of the dissertation proposal.

The selection process for a dissertation fellowship examines how the fellowship will contribute to the completion of the dissertation, the significance of original research, and endorsement by the dissertation chair. Recipients will receive $10,000 to apply toward 12 months of dissertation writing.
