SSRC-IDRF essay advising support for PhD students

The National Fellowship Program (NFP) provides advising support for the proposal essay of the SSRC International Dissertation Research Fellowship. This grant, covering nine to 12 months, is for PhD candidates who have completed all the work toward their degree except their dissertation in the humanities and humanistic social sciences and whose projects center on a non-U.S. topic and require at least three months (humanities students) or six months (humanistic social sciences students) of research abroad. More information about eligibility and the grant itself can be found on the IDRF page of the SSRC website.

If you are a PhD candidate who is interested in applying for the SSRC IDRF this year, the NFP will read a draft of your proposal essay. We will begin accepting essays on Oct. 9, and the latest submission date is Oct. 23; students should email their essays to To learn more information about this fellowship and how the NFP works with students, visit the Fellowships page of the Homewood Student Affairs website.
