Grad School Offers 11 Additional Dissertation-Focused Fellowships!

The Graduate School is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the 2016-17 Dissertation Research Fellowship. This year we have increased the number of dissertation fellowships from one to twelve different opportunities for funding.

Each award is designed to support outstanding doctoral students and promote excellence in research at the University of Oregon. Doctoral students in all academic disciplines at the UO are eligible to apply for these fellowships, but must be nominated by their school, college, or department. The dissertation research fellowships provide financial support for exceptional doctoral candidates to complete their dissertations.

Scott L. Pratt, dean of the Graduate School, notes the importance of these fellowships. “The best way to support research by PhD students is to provide them with time to complete their dissertations. The new research fellowships to be awarded for next year will significantly expand the University’s commitment to doctoral education.”

In addition to the longstanding UO Doctoral Research Fellowship, which carries a stipend of $18,000 for three terms or $12,000 for two terms and includes a university tuition waiver, students can also apply for the Eric Englund Fellowship, designed to support doctoral students whose dissertation research focuses on American Literature, History and other related fields. Both fellowships include health insurance provided by the UO Health Plan and paid for by the Graduate School.

Doctoral students are also welcome to apply for one of the departmental fellowships offered in partnership with the School of Music and Dance, Journalism and Communication, Architecture and Allied Arts, the College of Education, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Lundquist College of Business. Award amounts vary between $16,000 to $20,000 for three terms as well as fee and health insurance subsidies comparable to those received by students appointed as Graduate Teaching Fellows

Each department in the College of Arts and Sciences may nominate TWO candidates.  The Schools of Music and Dance, Journalism and Communication, and Architecture and Allied Arts, the College of Education, and the Lundquist College of Business may nominate up to THREE candidates each.

The deadline to apply is Friday, February 19, 2016 before 5:00 p.m.
