International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF)
Open for applications, next deadline is November 3, 2011. Apply Now
The International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) offers nine to twelve months of support to graduate students in the humanities and social sciences who are enrolled in doctoral programs in the United States and conducting dissertation research outside of the United States. IDRF promotes research that is situated in a specific discipline and geographical region but is also informed by interdisciplinary and cross-regional perspectives. Research topics may address all periods in history, but applicants should be alert to the broader implications of their research as it relates to contemporary issues and debates. Seventy-five fellowships are awarded annually. Fellowship amounts vary depending on the research plan, with a per-fellowship average of $19,000. The fellowship includes participation in an SSRC-funded interdisciplinary workshop upon the completion of IDRF-funded research.
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 to the 2012 IDRF competition must complete all Ph.D. requirements except on-site research by the time the fellowship begins or by December 2012, whichever comes first.
