The Center is now accepting applications for the 2022-23 Dissertation Completion Fellowship

Deadline: January 19, 2022 at 5:00pm

This  non-service fellowship supports a promising Carolina graduate student working in Jewish Studies in the advanced stages of his or her career at Carolina. The Dissertation Fellowship enables a student to focus full time on scholarship, improving quality and shortening the time  required to complete a Ph.D. degree. This fellowship is available to all students in doctoral programs at Carolina whose work makes a contribution to the interdisciplinary field of Jewish Studies. This fellowship is designed to support students during their final years of graduate study.  Priority may be given to students with a formally approved dissertation prospectus, but students with a clearly defined  project without an approved prospectus are also encouraged to apply. Awardees receive a competitive $20,000 stipend, plus payment for the three-credit dissertation tuition, fees, and health insurance for one academic year. NOTE: The Center’s TEP Fellows are not eligible for the Dissertation Completion Fellowship. Awardees will be scheduled to give an academic talk or seminar regarding their dissertation topic during the year they hold the fellowship.



Applications for the Dissertation Completion Fellowship must be submitted through the online application. Two letters of support from faculty and the DGS statement should be emailed to:
