The purpose of the Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship (DDF) program is to give outstanding final-year Ph.D. candidates who are making timely progress toward the degree--typically those who will be entering their final year of graduate study--an opportunity to complete the dissertation within the upcoming academic year by devoting full-time effort to the research and writing of the dissertation. Candidates must be nominated by their graduate program's Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) to an all-University competition. At least 75 Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships are awarded annually.
Recipients of the fellowship, in 2010-11, will receive a stipend of $22,500 for the academic year, plus full tuition for thesis credits. Eligible recipients are also covered by comprehensive health insurance, including subsidized dependent and dental care.
