The Mellon International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) offers nine to 12 months of support to graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who are enrolled in PhD programs in the U.S., and conducting dissertation research on non-U.S. topics. Seventy fellowships are awarded annually. Fellowship amounts vary depending on the research plan, with a per-fellowship average of $22,000. The fellowship includes participation in a Social Science Research Council (SSRC)-funded interdisciplinary workshop upon the completion of IDRF-funded research. Please note that the IDRF program supports research only and may not be used for dissertation write-up.
