International Dissertation Research Fellowship

The International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) Program supports the next generation of scholars in the humanities and social sciences pursuing research that advances knowledge about non-U.S. cultures and societies. IDRF accepts applications for research that is situated in a specific discipline and geographical region and is informed by interdisciplinary and cross-regional perspectives, as well as research on multiple countries and/or multiple world regions. While proposals may cover all periods in history, they must demonstrate relevance to contemporary issues and debates.

The program is open to graduate students in the humanities and social sciences — regardless of citizenship — enrolled in doctoral programs in the United States. Applicants must complete all Ph.D. requirements except on-site research by the time the fellowship begins. Proposals that identify the U.S. as a case for comparative inquiry are welcome; however, proposals which focus predominantly or exclusively on the United States are not eligible.

Fellowship Terms
The IDRF program provides support for nine to twelve months of continuous dissertation research outside of the United States for seventy-five fellows annually. Fellowship amounts vary depending on the research plan, with a per fellowship average of $19,000. The fellowship includes participation in an interdisciplinary workshop upon the completion of IDRF-funded research.

The 2012 IDRF Competition Deadline is November 3, 2011.

For more information, please visit http://www.ssrc.org/fellowships/idrf-fellowship/. Questions can be sent to the IDRF staff at idrf@ssrc.org.

The IDRF Program is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

American Council of Learned Societies Public Fellows Program

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) announces the inaugural competition of its Public Fellows program. In 2011 the program will place eight recent Ph.D.s in two-year staff positions at partnering agencies in government and the non-profit sector, beginning as early as September 2011. Fellows will participate in the substantive work of these agencies and receive professional mentoring. Compensation will be at the same level as new professional employees of the agency with similar experience.

For complete program details and an application, visit the Public Fellows Program page. All applications must be submitted through the ACLS Online Fellowship Application system by Monday, May 16, 3pm EDT.
