Deadline: November 1, 2006.

The Social Science Research Council and the American Council of Learned
Societies announce the 2007 competition of the INTERNATIONAL
DISSERTATION RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP (IDRF) program designed to support
distinguished graduate students in the humanities and social sciences
conducting dissertation research outside the United States. Fifty
fellowships of approximately $20,000 will be awarded in 2007 with funds
provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The IDRF program is committed to scholarship that advances knowledge
about non-U.S. cultures and societies grounded in empirical and
site-specific research (involving fieldwork, research in archival or
manuscript collections, or quantitative data collection). The program
promotes research that is at once located in a specific discipline and
geographical region and is engaged with interdisciplinary and
cross-regional perspectives.

Applicants must have completed all Ph.D. requirements except on-site
dissertation research by the time the fellowship begins or by December
2007, whichever comes first. Fellowships will provide support for nine
to twelve months of dissertation research. The fellowship must be held
for a single continuous period within the eighteen months between July
2007 and December 2008.

For more detailed information on application procedures and eligibility requirements, visit the IDRF website at www.ssrc.org or contact program staff at idrf@ssrc.org.


Deadline: November 1, 2006.
