This year, the IRCPL will award fellowships to graduate students at Columbia University to travel abroad or within the United States to conduct research on their dissertations.
Up to five fellowships are available to Columbia doctoral students who are preparing proposals or conducting research for their dissertations. The fellowship provides each student $4000 to cover expenses directly related to research, including, travel, lodging and materials, during the Summer 2013 or Fall 2013 semester. Students are also expected to make oral presentations on the results of their research.
Eligibility: Applications are welcome from students in Ph.D., J.S.D. and Ed.D. programs at Columbia’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Law School, or Teachers College, who are preparing prospectuses or chapters for their dissertations. Preference is given to students who are doing research on subjects that relate to those listed in the IRCPL mission statement and that involves travel abroad. Domestic travel to conduct archival research or research in particular communities will also be considered.
Application Requirements: All proposals must be submitted in English, double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman type, and with one-inch margins. Emphasis should also be placed on completeness and clarity of content. The full proposal must include all content that is outlined below, in the order in which it is listed.
1) A curriculum vitae, not to exceed two pages. Please include your departmental affiliation and up-to-date contact information;
2) A description of the research project, not to exceed five pages;
3) A travel plan and schedule for completion of the dissertation, not to exceed two pages;
4) An itemized budget;
