This award commemorates the scholarly achievements of the late Allan Sharlin, Professor of Sociology and an innovative scholar in the fields of demography and history at UC Berkeley. The award is made annually to students who show promise of advancing scholarship in the field of historical sociology, historical demography, or social history.

All UC Berkeley graduate students in good standing and who will be formally advanced to candidacy (will have satisfied all requirements for the Ph.D except the dissertation) by the Fall of the fellowship term may apply.  

Funds will not be available until the student has advanced to candidacy. Students must be registered with the Graduate Division for their award term. Students are eligible for support regardless of previous fellowships from other sources.  A total of no more than two years of support will be provided to a recipient of this fellowship; applications for the second year of support will be considered along with other applications for that year.

For more information and the application, see the Institute of International Studies website. Deadline to apply is March 18, 2019.
