The following is a list of major dissertation research funding opportunities. This list is not meant to be exhaustive; it is heavily geared towards humanities and social science graduate students, and is meant as a general purpose resource. It is not our intention to replace or replicate the opportunities made available to you through the fellowships offices of your home institutions; it is, rather, an additional resource at your disposal. Please be sure to regularly consult your fellowships offices at your home institutions for dissertation research funding opportunities.
