AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and
research. The program provides fellowships for women writing their dissertations, and
is intended to offset a scholar's living expenses while she completes her dissertation.
To be eligible for selection, the graduate scholar must be preparing a dissertation in
which ethical or religious values are a central concern. Appropriate dissertations might
explore the ethical implications of foreign policy, the values influencing political
decision, the moral codes of other cultures, and religious or ethical issues reflected
in history or literature.
The Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (DPDF) program supports mid-stage graduate
students in formulating effective doctoral dissertation research proposals that contribute
to the development of interdisciplinary fields of study in the humanities and social
sciences. Intended to help emerging scholars make the transition from learners to producers
of knowledge within innovative areas of inquiry, the fellowship creates a space for
multidisciplinary faculty mentorship and opens unique opportunities for both interdisciplinary
and international network building.
DeKarman fellowships are open to students in any discipline, including international students,
who are currently enrolled in a university or college located within the United States.
Special consideration will be given to applicants in the Humanities.
Awards will be made to individuals who have demonstrated superior academic achievement,
are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level,
show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to
use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.
The fellowship aims to advance the status of women by offering financial support to women
in the last year of doctoral studies. Preference is given to women pursuing doctoral studies
that have great social importance to the world or are under-represented by women.
This program provides grants to colleges and universities to fund individual doctoral
students who conduct research in other countries, in modern foreign languages and area
studies for periods of 6 to 12 months.
The Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowships support a year of research and writing
to help advanced graduate students in the humanities and related social sciences in the

The Dissertation Fellowship Program seeks to encourage a new generation of scholars
from a wide range of disciplines and professional fields to undertake research relevant
to the improvement of education. The fellowships support individuals whose dissertations
show potential for bringing fresh and constructive perspectives to the history, theory,
or practice of formal or informal education anywhere in the world.
The program invites proposals for empirical and site-specific dissertation research outside the
United States. The IDRF program is committed to empirical and site-specific research that advances
knowledge about non-U.S. cultures and societies (involving many kinds of fieldwork and surveys,
research in archival or manuscript collections, or quantitative data collection). The program
promotes research that is situated in a specific discipline and geographical region and is
engaged with interdisciplinary and cross-regional perspectives.
