The application will be available from Sept. 13 through Oct. 29, 2021 (at 11:59PM MST).
Arts & Humanities applicants: those students in Asian Languages and Civilizations, Classics, English, French and Italian, Germanic & Slavic Languages & Literatures, History, Philosophy, Spanish and Portuguese, and Theatre and Dance - should apply to the Arts & Humanities Dissertation Fellowships instead of to the Graduate School Dissertation Completion Fellowship.
This fellowship is intended to provide outstanding PhD candidates with financial support to assist in the process of completing their doctoral dissertations. The fellowship consists of full support for one academic semester (either fall or spring of the following academic year), and includes a monthly stipend equal to that of the current 50% GPTI salary, tuition coverage of up to five dissertation hours, mandatory fees, and coverage under the student gold health insurance plan. Please note: students may not engage in other forms of paid employment (working, teaching, or off-campus employment) during the time they receive a Dissertation Fellowship. Additionally, any hours taken by students outside their dissertation hours will not be covered, and fellows may not accept another fellowship or grant during the same time period. The purpose of the fellowship is to allow recipients to devote their full attention to the dissertation.
