Pre-dissertation External

External Grants and Fellowships

In the early predissertation years of doctoral programs, most students rely on funding from the university in the form of fellowships, educational loans, and income from teaching and research appointments, as well as part-time employment. There are a number of external fellowships that provide significant support in the predissertation years, and students in the Social Sciences are often strong competitors for prestigious awards such as the Beinecke, Ford, or Soros fellowships.
