Fellowships for PhD Students
HFPO annually provides 12-month-long fellowships of $30,000 for dissertation projects that expand research concerning orientation.
We began our fellowship program in the academic year 2021-22 with our first fellow, Olga Faccani, who is a PhD Candidate at UC Santa Barbara. Her dissertation is entitled “Tragic Bonds: Death, Disorientation, and Trauma in Euripides.” Learn more about her research here.
- No citizenship restrictions.
- Candidates must be in the writing stage of their dissertation by the time the fellowship begins; this means all pre-dissertation requirements must be complete by the start date. If the candidate has not yet defended his or her dissertation proposal when submitting the application, the letters of recommendation must testify that the candidate will do so before the time of the award.
- Candidates must submit an abstract (300 words), a project proposal (2,500 words), a CV, and two letters of recommendation (we will contact your references when you submit your application; please notify your references to write letters ahead of time; however, the letters may be submitted until April 25).
