IRCPL Dissertation Fellowships are available to Columbia University students enrolled in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) who have completed the 5th year of the PhD program. The dissertation must focus in a significant way on the study of religion, secularism, or closely related topics.
The IRCPL Dissertation Fellowship provides students with $5,000 towards the completion of the dissertation over the course of an academic semester (typically the fall semester). Fellowship recipients must be in residence at Columbia University for the duration of the award period and are expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Institute.
IRCPL Dissertation Fellows are expected to attend a monthly seminar/roundtable with the Director of IRCPL. This monthly seminar will take place on the second Friday of each month. Each fellow will have the opportunity to present a chapter on which they are working and receive feedback.
Applications for the 2019 IRCPL Dissertation Fellowships are due on Monday, May 6th, 2019, at 12pm.
