Frequently Asked Questions
About Graduate Dissertation Fellowships
Who is eligible to apply?
Applicants must be full-time doctoral students who have been advanced to candidacy at the time of application and are conducting research for or writing an approved dissertation in a humanities-related field. Applicants must be in the last full year of work on the dissertation during their fellowship term. Applicants for this fellowship are not eligible to apply for the OHC Graduate Research Support Fellowship during the same academic year.
Can current or past Graduate Research Support fellows apply for a Dissertation Fellowship?
How many copies of my application should I turn in?
7 total: Your original plus 6 complete, collated and stapled copies of the entire packet (cover sheet, all application materials and c.v.).
I’m not sure if my project is “humanistic.”
Contact Julia Heydon, (541) 346-1001 or Barbara Altmann, (541) 346-7017.
What do I do if my dissertation advisor is out of the country? Can I get an extension?
No late applications will be accepted, and no extensions are possible. However, if your dissertation advisor is unavailable to sign in person in time for you to submit your application by the deadline, we will accept temporary approval by e-mail if it is received on or before the regular deadline. A hard copy of the fellowship proposal cover sheet with actual signature(s) must be submitted to the OHC as soon thereafter as possible. If an acting dean/department head or other signatory designee has been appointed, their signature will be accepted in lieu of that of your dean or department head.
Can I see a copy of a successful application from a previous year?
We have a selection of successful applications that you may view at the Oregon Humanities Center. Please contact Lindsey Henriksen Rodgers at (541) 346-3934 to make an appointment. You will not be permitted to make copies or remove the application samples from the OHC.
Will holding a Fall term Graduate Dissertation Fellowship affect my summer sandwich credit?
Yes. If you hold a Graduate Dissertation Fellowship in the fall term you will not be eligible for summer sandwich credit for summer term (immediately preceding the fellowship term). If you plan on enrolling for summer credits, apply for a winter or spring term fellowship. For more information visit: http://gradschool.uoregon.edu/gtf/summer-sandwich
I don’t see my question here. Who should I contact?
Contact Julia Heydon, (541) 346-1001.
