Applicants applying for a Dissertation Fieldwork Grant may also choose to be considered simultaneously for the Osmundsen Initiative.
Please note that the maximum amount of the Dissertation Fieldwork Grant has been changed. Dissertation Fieldwork Grants provide a maximum of US $20,000 and the Osmundsen Initiative supplement provides up to an additional $5,000 for a maximum grant of US $25,000. Grants are non-renewable.
Students must be enrolled in a doctoral program (or equivalent, if applying from outside the United States) at the time of application. Students of all nationalities are eligible to apply. There is no time limit on the duration of the grant, and funding may be requested to cover distinct research phases (for example, two summers) if this is part of the research design.
Application deadlines are May 1 and November 1. Final decisions are made six months later. Applicants must submit application materials using the Foundation's online application submission procedure as well as send printed copies to the Foundation by regular mail.
