Application deadline: January 26, 2016
The Council for European Studies (CES) invites eligible graduate students in the humanities to apply for the 2016 Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships in European Studies. Each fellowship includes a $25,000 stipend, paid in six (6) bi-monthly installments over the course of the fellowship year, as well as assistance in securing reimbursements or waivers in eligible health insurance and candidacy fees.
Winners of the Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships will also be expected to participate in a number of professional development activities organized by the Council for European Studies for the benefit of its fellows and designed to support early career development.
Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships are intended to facilitate the timely completion of the doctoral degree by late-stage graduate students in the humanities working on Europe.
To be eligible an applicant must:
- be ABD (year 5 and above);
- be a US citizen or green card holder;
- can have no more than one full year of dissertation work remaining at the start of the fellowship year as certified by his or her dissertation advisor;
- be enrolled at a higher education institution in the U.S. that is a member of the Council for European Studies Academic Consortium. Students whose universities are not currently members of the CES consortium may apply, but they are encouraged to apply early in the application season so that every effort may be made to enroll the institution in the CES member consortium and, thus, establish the student’s eligibility by the application deadline.
The applicant must also have exhausted the dissertation completion funding normally provided by his or her academic department or university, and he or she must be working on a topic within or substantially overlapping European Studies.
