The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Grant supporting Graduate Study in the Humanities at Rutgers Art History, Comparative Literature, English, History, Linguistics, and Philosophy Competitive Dissertation Fellowships and Summer Grants 2011 – 2012
The School of Arts and Sciences Mellon Grant Selection Committee expects to award up to 14 Dissertation Fellowships and up to 30 Summer Grants for the 2011-2012 academic year. Fellowships and grants are awarded on the basis of academic excellence, timely progress to degree, and, for Dissertation Fellows, promise of completion, by a committee composed of the Dean of Humanities, the Director of the Mellon Grant, and a select panel of faculty members in the humanities.
Students may apply for both Dissertation Fellowships and Summer Grants, but may not hold both. Students awarded Dissertation Fellowships will be removed from the competition for Summer Grants.
Applications for both awards are due December 20, 2010. The Committee will announce all awards on February 7, 2011.
