Center for Engaged Scholarship (CES) application process for this year’s fellowship is open

The Center for Engaged Scholarship (CES) is pleased to announce that the application process for this year’s fellowship awards is now available.  They are planning to award at least five fellowships of $25,000 each for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Our dissertation fellowships are for Ph.D. students in the social sciences whose work is of high quality and that has the potential to contribute to making U.S. society less unequal, more democratic, and more environmentally sustainable. The CES fellowship is intended for Ph.D. students writing their dissertations in academic departments and programs in the social sciences, including history, and social science-focused interdisciplinary programs; we will not accept applications this time from students in education, public health and social work programs.

The only requirement not completed must be the writing and where required, the defense, of the dissertation. Students getting a PhD in public health, education and social work are not eligible. PhD students in the following areas of study may apply: 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.

Application deadline is December 15, 2016.
