Harvard University - Harvard Law School - Program on Negotiation Graduate Research Fellowships
Consistent with the Program on Negotiation (PON) goal of fostering the development of the next generation of scholars, the Program on Negotiation Graduate Research Fellowships provide support for one year of dissertation research and writing in negotiation and related topics in alternative dispute resolution and give fellows an opportunity to immerse themselves in the diverse resources available at PON.
Center for Engaged Scholarship - Dissertation Fellowship
Center for Engaged Scholarship fellowships are for PhD students in the social sciences whose work is of high quality and that has the potential to contribute to making US society less unequal, more democratic, and more environmentally sustainable. Students enrolled in a US PhD program in the following areas of study may apply: anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, social psychology, and sociology.
Spalding Trust - Grants
The purpose of the Trust is to promote a better understanding between the great cultures of the world by encouraging the study of the religious principles on which they are based. To further this purpose, the Trust makes grants to institutions and to individuals. The institutions may include libraries, colleges or any place of learning, and the grant may be dedicated to the purchase of books, the provision of a subsidy towards the cost of a visiting lecturer's fee or, in exceptional circumstances, to the establishment of a professorial Chair or a Lectureship.
Harry S. Truman Library Institute - Research Grants
Since it first opened its Research Room in 1959, the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum has welcomed nearly 15,000 historians, writers and scholars, representing more than 40 nations. From the beginning, the Truman Library Institute has provided grants-in-aid for researchers; the total granted now stands at nearly $2.7 million. Today, research grants, awards and fellowships provide assistance to emerging and established scholars whose contributions illuminate the critical issues of Truman’s presidency and legacy.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Science, Technology, and Society (STS) - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRI)
STS is an interdisciplinary field that investigates topics relating to the scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical (STEM) disciplines, including medical science. STS research uses historical, philosophical, and social scientific methods to investigate STEM theory and practice with regards to history and socio-cultural formation, philosophical underpinnings, and impacts of science and technology on quality of life, culture, and society.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Biological Anthropology Program - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRI)
The Biological Anthropology Program supports multifaceted research to advance scientific knowledge of human biology and ecology, including understanding of our evolutionary history and mechanisms that have shaped human and nonhuman primate biological diversity. Supported research focuses on living and fossil forms of both human and nonhuman primates, addressing time scales ranging from the short-term to evolutionary, encompassing multiple levels of analysis (e.g., molecular, organismal, population, ecosystem), conducted in field, laboratory, captive, and computational research environments, and often incorporating interactions between human biology and culture.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Science of Science and Innovation Policy Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (SciSIP-DDRIG)
Science of Science and Innovation Policy program Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (SciSIP-DDRIG) support research designed to advance the scientific basis of science and innovation policy. The program funds research to develop models, analytical tools, data and metrics that can be applied in the science policy decision making process and concern the use and allocation of scarce scientific resources.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Law & Social Sciences (LSS) - Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants
The Law & Social Sciences Program at the National Science Foundation (NSF) supports social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules. Successful proposals describe research that advances scientific theory and understanding of the connections between law or legal processes and human behavior. The Law & Social Sciences Program funds the best proposals submitted within the field broadly defined, regardless of specific subfield, and strives to support an interdisciplinary community of scholars studying relevant topics.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Economics - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIG)
The Economics program supports research designed to improve the understanding of the processes and institutions of the U.S. economy and of the world system of which it is a part. This program also strengthens both empirical and theoretical economic analysis as well as the methods for rigorous research on economic behavior. It supports research in almost every area of economics, including econometrics, economic history, environmental economics, finance, industrial organization, international economics, labor economics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics, and public finance.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences Program - High Risk Research in Biological Anthropology and-or Archaeology (HRRBAA)
This program is designed to permit the submission of high-risk, exploratory proposals that can lead to significant new anthropological knowledge. Because of a highly competitive environment, proposals that have both a high risk of failure and the potential for significant payoffs are less able to compete with standard research proposals. This program is designed to provide a mechanism whereby risky proposals with a great potential for advancement of the discipline can compete for funding. The risk involved in such endeavors must significantly exceed that associated with regular research projects. Two branches of the discipline represented by NSF programs -- Archaeology and Biological Anthropology -- utilize this mechanism.
