SSCP Dissertation Grant Awards
These awards are intended to both recognize and support students who have already received approval for their dissertation project. Accordingly, in addition to the evaluation of the proposal as a whole, we will also consider what additional sources of funding have been received in the context of the overall estimated cost of the project. Awards will be in the amount of $500. It is anticipated that up to 5 grants will be funded. Eligibility requirements and application instructions are listed on the main SSCP website.
Applications must be received by November 15. Notification of awards will be made in early January.
