2019 RIGS Dissertation Proposal Fellowship (Minneapolis, 3/18-3/21/2019)

Posted: 1/14/2019 (Funding)

The Race, Indigeneity, Gender, and Sexuality (RIGS) Studies Initiative presents the RIGS Dissertation Proposal Fellowship (DPF). The DPF encourages applications from students from underrepresented groups and whose research engages broadly with issues of inequality with an intensive week-long dissertation proposal workshop in March 2019. In addition, we will award a $1000 stipend/fellowship.

Our focus is to support graduate students, approximately in their second to fourth years of graduate study, who are in the middle of developing their dissertation proposals. In this inaugural year, we are looking for projects in the humanities, education, policy, and the social sciences, that are committed to addressing and engaging with some of the most pressing socio-economic issues and inequalities of our time.

The RIGS DPF workshop will run from March 18, 2019, through March 21, 2019, and active participation in this workshop is a requirement of the fellowship.
