International Dissertation Research Fellowships (IDRF) are offered by the Social Science Research Council and provide nine to twelve months of support to graduate students in the humanities and social sciences who are enrolled in doctoral programs in the United States and are conducting dissertation research outside of the United States. IDRF promotes research that is situated in a specific discipline and geographical region but is also informed by interdisciplinary and cross-regional perspectives. Research topics may address all periods in history, but applicants should be alert to the broader implications of their research as it relates to contemporary issues and debates. 75 fellowships are awarded annually, with amounts varying depending on the research plan (per-fellowship average is $18,750). The fellowship includes participation in an interdisciplinary workshop upon the completion of IDRF-funded research. Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizens enrolled in Ph.D. programs in the humanities and social sciences. Students may be eligible to apply if their research projects engage directly with broader theoretical and analytical issues in the humanities and social sciences. The program does not accept applications from Ph.D. programs in law, business, medicine, nursing or journalism. For more information, please contact the Social Science Research Council by phone at 212-377-2700 or e-mail [email protected].

The University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law (UDC-DCSL) offers up to 20 full-tuition Advocate for Justice Scholarships each year. Their award is based equally upon evaluation of applicants' academic talent and their proven commitment as advocates for justice. Toward this end, the School considers applicants' undergraduate and graduate fields of study; grades; LSAT scores; publications; academic, personal and professional recommendations; as well as evidence of their professional experiences, community service, and other pertinent information. Due to UDC-DCSL's emphasis on demonstrated commitment to working for justice, successful scholarship applicants may be more than a few years out of college. The Scholarship Committee welcomes applicants to share information on specific legal career goals, if they have them. If applicants do not have a clearly developed practice area in mind, they should explain to the Committee what in their personal background and history demonstrates their values and/or proves their commitment to serving as an advocate for justice. The Committee is particularly interested in the applicant's having taken initiative, having applied creativity, having organized others, having participated in public discussion or debate, or in other activities working for justice. For further information on deadlines and requirements, please visit the program website.
