This year the Ford Foundation will award approximately 36 dissertation fellowships. These fellowships provide one year of support for individuals working to complete a dissertation leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or Doctor of Science (Sc.D.) degree. The Ford Foundation Dissertation Fellowship is intended to support the final year of writing and defense of the dissertation. Dissertation fellowships will be awarded in a national competition administered by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (the Academies) on behalf of the Ford Foundation.
