The Council for European Studies (CES) invites eligible graduate students to apply for the 2013 Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships in European Studies. Each fellowship includes a $25,000 stipend, paid in six (6) bi-monthly installments over the course of the fellowship year, as well as assistance in securing reimbursements or waivers in eligible health insurance and candidacy fees.
Winners of the Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships will also be expected to participate in a number of professional development activities organized by the Council for European Studies for the benefit of its fellows and designed to support early career development. These activities include: publishing in Perspectives on Europe, a semi-annual journal of the Council for European studies; presenting at the International Conference of Europeanists, hosted by the Council for European Studies; and participating in several digital and in-person career development seminars and/or workshops.
The Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships are funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships are intended to facilitate the timely completion of the doctoral degree by late-stage graduate students focusing on topics in European Studies. To be eligible an applicant must be ABD, must be enrolled at a higher education institution in the U.S., and can have no more than one full year of dissertation work remaining at the start of the fellowship year as certified by his or her dissertation advisor. The applicant must also have exhausted the dissertation completion funding normally provided by his or her academic department or university, and he or she must be working on a topic within or substantially overlapping European Studies.
Applications are due (along with all supporting materials) on or before February 4, 2013.
