Spencer Foundation Offers Dissertation Fellowship Program in Education Improvement

Deadline: November 1, 2006

The Spencer Foundation’s (<a href="http://www.spencer.org/">http://www.spencer.org/</a>) fellowship programs support scholars engaged in educational research at different stages of their professional lives.

The foundation’s Dissertation Fellowship Program seeks to encourage a new generation of scholars from a wide range of disciplines and professional fields to undertake research relevant to the improvement of education. These fellowships support individuals whose dissertations show potential for bringing fresh and constructive perspectives to the history, theory, or practice of formal or informal education anywhere in the world.

Although the dissertation topic must concern education, graduate study may be in any academic discipline or professional field. Candidates should be interested in pursuing further research in education once the doctorate is attained.

Applicants need not be citizens of the United States; however, they must be candidates for the doctoral degree at a graduate school within the U.S. All applicants must document that they will have completed all pre-dissertation requirements by June 1, 2007, and must provide a clear and specific plan for completing the dissertation within a one or two-year time frame.

Fellows’ stipends are to support completion of their dissertations and are to be expended within one or two years and in accordance with the work plan provided by the candidate in his/her application.
