Dissertation Completion Fellowships
For students who matriculated before Summer 2016, Dissertation Completion Fellowships provide tuition, University student health insurance, the Graduate Student Services fee, and an academic-year stipend. These awards are designed to increase completion rates and promote reductions in time-to-degree in the social sciences. Award preference is given to those students who are likely to complete the degree within tenure of the fellowship.
Students can hold a completion fellowship no later than the eighth year of doctoral studies. Quarters of pro forma status count towards the year of study; leave of absence quarters do not count. Students must be admitted to candidacy at the time of application. Applications are generally due mid-May.
