RE: September 19: Applying for International Dissertation Research Fellowships (IDRF) Webinar
All UF students and faculty are invited to join us for a live viewing of the first webinar on how to apply for the International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF), a funding program of the Social Science Research Council that supports graduate research across the humanities and social sciences.
This webinar will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 in 210 Pugh Hall on the UF campus. It will be led by IDRF Program Officer Dr. Daniella Sarnoff. Following the webinar, Professor Brenda Chalfin (UF Department of Anthropology) will speak about her experience reviewing applications for the IDRF program.
The deadline for fall applications to the IDRF program is November 7, 2012.
This is an excellent event to attend if you are interested in applying for the IDRF, or seeking funding for graduate funding more generally. Many of the discussion points brought up in the webinar will be relevant to humanities fellowship grant-seeking more generally. No RSVP is needed. This event is organized by the UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere, with support from the CLAS Dean's Office and UF Office of Research.
The International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) Program supports the next generation of scholars in the humanities and humanistic social sciences pursuing research that advances knowledge about non-U.S. cultures and societies. This program funds graduate research across a variety of disciplines. The program invites proposals for dissertation research conducted, in whole or in part, outside the United States, about non-US topics. It will consider applications for dissertation research grounded in a single site, informed by broader cross-regional and interdisciplinary perspectives, as well as applications for multi-sited, comparative, and transregional research. Proposals that identify the United States as a case for comparative inquiry are welcome; however, proposals which focus predominantly or exclusively on the United States are not eligible. Two Ph.D. candidates in History, Roberto Chauca Tapia and Christopher Austin Woolley, received IDRF funding in 2012.
This event is free and open to all UF students and faculty.
