Graduate Society Predissertation Summer Fellowships

Harvard Graduate Society Predissertation Summer Fellowships provide support to outstanding Harvard GSAS doctoral students in the humanities and social sciences for the purpose of summer language study and/or preliminary dissertation research or fieldwork. The award is ordinarily for students in the summer following the G1, G2 ,or G3 year, and is intended for students still at an early stage in the development of the dissertation — prior to having an approved prospectus. Preference will be given to summer projects that will help advance the applicant from the predissertation stage to an early stage of the dissertation. The award is merit-based; financial need is not a consideration. GSAS generally awards 24 predissertation summer fellowships from a pool of 80 applicants. The award may be used in the U.S. or abroad. The stipend is $3,000.
