EAS Graduate Student Elizabeth Sherrill has been awarded a College of Arts + Sciences Dissertation Year Fellowship for 2023-2024.
College of Arts and Sciences Dissertation Research Fellowships are intended to help advanced graduate students in the College make significant progress on their dissertations.
To be eligible for a Dissertation Research Fellowship, you must be formally admitted to candidacy in a Ph.D. program. Ordinarily, preference will be given to students who have not received a fellowship from another souce within the last two years (the year of application and the year prior).
For 2023-2024, the fellowship stipends will be $22,000 each. During the fellowship year, students have the opportunity to focus full time on their dissertation research and writing. Students must be formally admitted to Ph.D. candidacy by January 2023 to be eligible for the fellowship.
The fellowships include graduate student health insurance, but they do not include fee remissions. Students generally are not permitted to accept other appointments, fellowships, or outside employment during the fellowship year.
