The Center for Engaged Scholarship (CES) is accepting applications from Ph.D. students in the social sciences who have already completed all departmental and institutional requirements for the Ph.D. degree, including approval of the dissertation proposal. The only requirement not completed must be the writing and, where required, the defense of the dissertation. The fellowship is intended for Ph.D. students writing their dissertations in academic departments and programs in the social sciences, including: anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, social psychology, and sociology. Work inspired by these disciplines carried out in interdisciplinary programs such as ethnic studies, women’s studies, or American studies is also accepted. The Center for Engaged Scholarship fellowships are open to all Ph.D. students who meet the fellowship qualifications, as long as they are enrolled in a Ph.D. program in a U.S. university or college. This includes foreign nationals and undocumented individuals. Successful applicants will be announced the final week of April 2018, and will receive a stipend of $25,000 paid out over a nine month period. The application deadline is December 15, 2017.
