The DPDF program provides an opportunity for tenured faculty in the humanities and social sciences to train the next generation of scholars within emerging areas of research. Within the program's structure, pairs of faculty propose innovative research fields that will serve as themes for dissertation proposal development training workshops. Recipients then lead these training workshops for selected doctoral students in the spring and fall of fellowship year. Successful applicants of the DPDF Faculty Field Competition are awarded a $10,000 stipend; additionally, each field is provided with up to $3,000 to cover the costs of guest speakers and other activities to enhance their workshop sessions. All necessary travel and lodging expenses for faculty are covered by the program. For more information on eligibility, application requirements, and other program details, please see our website:
