International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) Information Session
Thursday, September 26th at 3pm
Student Center East, room 203
Interested students are invited to come hear from a representative of the
Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) which offers nine to twelve months of support to graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who are enrolled in PhD programs in the
United States and conducting dissertation research on non-US topics. Seventy fellowships are awarded annually. Fellowship amounts vary depending on the research plan, with a per-fellowship average of $23,000. The fellowship includes participation in an SSRC-funded
interdisciplinary workshop upon the completion of IDRF-funded research.
Deadline: November 5th
Eligibility: The program is open to graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciencesóregardless of citizenshipóenrolled in PhD programs in the United States. Applicants to the 2020 IDRF competition must complete
all PhD requirements except on-site research by the time the fellowship begins or by December 2020, whichever comes first.
The program invites proposals for dissertation research conducted, in whole or in part, outside the United States, on non-US topics. It will consider applications for dissertation research grounded in a single site, informed
by broader cross-regional and interdisciplinary perspectives, as well as applications for multi-sited, comparative, and transregional research. Proposals that identify the United States as a case for comparative inquiry are welcome; however, proposals that
focus predominantly or exclusively on the United States are not eligible.
