The Center for Engaged Scholarship, a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives in San Francisco,  is accepting applications for dissertation fellowships of $25,000 each. The Center supports “scholarship that can move us to a society that is more egalitarian, more democratic, and committed to environmental sustainability.”

Students working on a dissertation in the social sciences or related interdisciplinary fields at a U.S. university are eligible regardless of citizenship status. Fellowship applications will be evaluated both for their scholarly merit and for their ability to contribute to progressive change. In this first fellowship competition, preference will be given to candidates who will be writing their dissertation during the fellowship year.

Applications are due January 31, 2016.  More information is available on the CES website.
