2013-2014 Dissertation Year Fellowship (DYF)
These fellowships provide a year’s funding to enable uninterrupted work to complete a dissertation. Awards are restricted to ABD students who are entering their 5th or 6th year (as of fall 2013) and writing dissertations in an area of the humanities or humanistic social sciences using methods that are qualitative (i.e., not empirical or quantitative), analytical, critical, and/or speculative. As long as the dissertation takes this humanistic approach, students in the following programs will qualify: Anthropology, English, American History, Comparative History, Musicology, Music Composition, Near Eastern and Judaic Studies (Bible, Modern Jewish Studies, Middle East), Politics, and Sociology. The 2014-15 application will be posted here on November 15 and due January 30, 2014.
