Dissertation Fellows

Each academic year, the Center awards fellowships to students enrolled in a College of the Liberal Arts department or program, who each conduct scholarship that reflects the CDD's concern with civic life and the character and quality of public discourse.

Past recipients of the CDD Graduate Fellowship have received a one-semester release (fall or spring) from teaching or related service and a research grant to humanities graduate students in the College of the Liberal Arts who are supported on assistantships. Under the sponsorship of the CDD, Dissertation Fellows become involved in a weekly, faculty-led dissertation writing group, and present their research in a public venue.
