International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF)


  • The program is open to graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences enrolled in PhD programs in the United States
  • No restrictions on citizenship

More Details

  • The program invites proposals for dissertation research conducted, in whole or in part, outside the United States, on non-US topics. It will consider applications for dissertation research grounded in a single site, informed by broader cross-regional and interdisciplinary perspectives, as well as applications for multi-sited, comparative, and transregional research. Proposals that identify the United States as a case for comparative inquiry are welcome; however, proposals that focus predominantly or exclusively on the United States are not eligible.
  • The IDRF application must be filled out online and can be accessed through the SSRC Online Application Portal. You will also use this portal to contact your referees and language evaluator(s), complete the research relevance section, upload your research proposal and bibliography, and send reminders to referees and language evaluators.

The application and submission guidelines can be found on the scholarship’s website.

Amount: $20,000
