The NeMLA Humanities Dissertation Fellowship was created to offset the living expenses of qualified NeMLA graduate student members and enable high quality research while they complete their dissertation.
The Northeast Modern Language Assoication Humanities Dissertation Fellowship provides financial support to qualified NeMLA graduate student members in their final year of writing the dissertation. The fellowship amount is $5000 per award.
Applicants must have ABD status (completed all course work, passed all preliminary examinations, and received approval for their research proposals). Students who already hold a fellowship for writing a dissertation from their own or another institution are not eligible.
The award is open to applicants in all fields of study in the humanities. Scholars engaged in researching gender, class, race, or environmental issues are especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants must be NeMLA members, and preference will be given to scholars who have engaged the profession outside of their own institutional affiliations (e.g. by attending regional, national, or international conferences).
The application deadline for the 2024 NeMLA Humanities Dissertation Fellowship is September 1, 2023.
