SSRC Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship

SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH COUNCIL [SSRC]
Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (DPDF)

The Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (DPDF) is designed to help early-stage graduate students in the humanities and social sciences formulate more effective doctoral dissertation proposals. Senior tenured faculty serve as research directors who identify research fields for groups of 12 graduate students. The faculty research directors design two workshops: one to prepare students to undertake summer research that will inform the design of their dissertation proposal, held in spring; the other to help students apply their summer research experiences to writing dissertation and funding proposals, held in the fall. Working together,
research directors and graduate students help shape emerging fields in the humanities and social sciences.

The DPDF program is open to second-and third-year graduate students in all disciplines of the social sciences and humanities who are currently enrolled full time in Ph.D. programs at accredited universities in the United States First and fourth year students may, under exceptional circumstances, be eligible.
