The Mellon International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) offers nine to twelve months of support to graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who are enrolled in PhD programs in the United States and conducting dissertation research on non-US topics.
The program is open to graduate students in the humanities and social sciences—regardless of citizenship—enrolled in PhD programs in the United States. Applicants to the 2014 IDRF competition must complete all PhD requirements except on-site research by the time the fellowship begins or by December 2014, whichever comes first.
The fellowship includes participation in an SSRC-funded interdisciplinary workshop upon the completion of IDRF-funded research.
9 to 12 months.
Eighty fellowships are awarded annually. Fellowship amounts vary depending on the research plan, with a per-fellowship average of $20,000.
