Dissertation Fellowship

Description

To encourage and support the production of dissertations in military history by qualified graduate students, the Center offers up to two Dissertation Fellowships each academic year. These fellowships carry an $10,000 stipend and access to the Center's facilities and technical expertise. Although the history of war on land is broadly defined in the fellowship program, the selection of winners gives preference to topics on the history of the U.S. Army. Applicants who wish to become Fellows must be civilian citizens of the United States unaffiliated with the U.S. government. They must also have completed by September all requirements for the Ph.D. degree, except for the dissertation. Any student who has held or accepted an equivalent fellowship from any other Department of Defense agency is not eligible for these awards. Individuals who accept a Center of Military History fellowship may not accept a fellowship from any other institution for a period concurrent with the Center's fellowship.
