Are you looking for sabbatical support while you focus on your dissertation?
Graduate Sabbatical Grants provide up to $15,000 to PhD candidates (ABD) and postdoctoral fellows to buy out teaching or research assistance responsibilities for a semester so that they can complete vital work toward the completion of their degrees, publications, or other milestones in their early academic careers.
Awardees are expected to complete a significant milestone in their early academic career—examples include completing large portions of a dissertation, completing and submitting publishing material, or producing and presenting work at a major conference.
Awardees will be asked to provide copies of—or information about the accomplishment of—significant milestones during the course of the sabbatical and to keep IHS updated on their other relevant research progress.
These grants are highly competitive and applicants who do not receive a sabbatical offer may still be invited to receive a Humane Studies Fellowship.
