The Center for Engaged Scholarship is a new organization, created by and for social scientists, who want the United States to be a more democratic, more egalitarian, and more environmentally sustainable society. The center’s first initiative is a dissertation fellowship for social science PhD students in the U.S.
The center is offering dissertation fellowships of $25,000 to support graduate students whose research advances progressive values. The center is accepting applications from Ph.D students in the social sciences who have already completed all departmental and institutional requirements for the Ph.D. degree, including approval of the dissertation proposal. The only requirement not completed must be the writing and where required, the defense, of the dissertation.
The following areas of study apply: anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, social psychology, sociology. Work inspired by these disciplines carried out in interdisciplinary programs such as ethnic studies, women’s studies, or American studies is also accepted.
This fellowship opportunity is open to undocumented students. The Center for Engaged Scholarship fellowships are open to all Ph.D students who meet the fellowship qualifications, as long as they are enrolled in a U.S. Ph.D program. This includes foreign nationals and undocumented individuals.
The deadline to apply is January 31st, 2016.
