The Center for Engaged Scholarship, a new entity that is committed to progressive scholarship, will award two or three dissertation fellowships of $25,000 each for the 2016-2017 academic year. Full information, including the online application portal, will be available at the website, http://www.Cescholar.org. The application portal will be available on November 30th 2015. The application deadline is January 31, 2016. Students working on a dissertation in the social sciences or related interdisciplinary fields at a U.S. university are eligible regardless of citizenship status.
The Center has been created to promote and support scholarship that can move us to a society that is more egalitarian, more democratic, and committed to environmental sustainability. 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 the dissertation during the fellowship year.
Please spread the word and pass this announcement on to both graduate students who are interested and faculty who might be supervising students at or near to the dissertation stage.
