Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship Program to Fund Education

Research

 

Deadline: November 2, 2007

 

The Spencer Foundation ( http://www.spencer.org/ ) 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

$25,000 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.

 

Although the dissertation topic must concern education, graduate

study may be in any academic discipline or professional field.

Candidates should be interested in pursuing further research in

education once the doctorate is attained.

 

Applicants need not be citizens of the United States; however, they

must be candidates for the doctoral degree at a graduate school

within the United States. The fellowships are not intended to

finance data collection or the completion of doctoral course- work,

but rather to support the final analysis of the research topic and

the writing of the dissertation. All applicants must document that

they will have completed all pre-dissertation requirements by June

1, 2008, and must provide a clear and specific plan for completing

the dissertation within a one- or two-year time frame.

 

The 2008 dissertation fellowship instructions will be available at

the Spencer Foundation Web site.
