MMUF Dissertation Grants
December 2, 2016
Application Deadline for 2017 Grants
The MMUF Dissertation Grants are available to graduate students who participated in the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program. The grants provide graduate students at the critical juncture of completing their graduate degrees with support to spend a year finishing the writing of the dissertation.
As of 11/14: An updated version of the application has been uploaded which modifies all fillable fields to ensure that applicants can fill out and format all fields. Please use this new version when submitting your application.
The dissertation grant offers up to $20,000 for a 12-month period. Fellows are encouraged to apply for dissertation grants from their home institutions. Winners who do not receive dissertation support from their own institutions are eligible to receive the full amount. The grant will be reduced by funding from other sources to ensure that each awardee receives a maximum award from all sources of $20,000. Woodrow Wilson will ask graduate schools to waive tuition for winners of the MMUF Dissertation Grant. Candidates must arrange for their own health insurance coverage.
