CDD Seeks Dissertation Fellows for 2015-2016 School Year

The Center for Democratic Deliberation (CDD) is pleased to announce the 2015-16 Dissertation Fellows Program, in conjunction with the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) and the Humanities Initiative Dissertation Release program (see attached for information about other fellow programs in the College of Liberal Arts).  These awards provide a one-semester release from teaching or related service and a research grant to humanities graduate students in CLA who are supported on assistantships. Awardees will have the title of CDD Dissertation Fellow.

CDD Dissertation Fellows will continue to receive their regular assistantship stipend. They will also receive a $1000 research fund provided by the CDD to use for equipment, supplies, travel, or other expenses related to the dissertation project. While the course release is for one semester, the award term is the whole academic year. Under the sponsorship of the CDD, Dissertation Fellows will have access to office space for the academic year in 210 Sparks. They also will participate in a faculty-led Dissertation Writing Group and present their research at a public colloquium during the spring semester.  CDD Fellows are expected to remain in residence at University Park during the period of the Dissertation Fellows Program and to participate in the activities of the Center.

Applicants should send one PDF copy of their application materials to Keshia Kennelley at kak43@psu.edu. The deadline for receipt of applications is Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 5pm.
