Dissertation Fellowships


The Saint Louis University Dissertation Fellowship seeks to encourage a new generation of scholars to undertake innovative and extensive research. Dissertation Fellowships are competitively awarded to Saint Louis University Ph.D. candidates whose work, during their time at Saint Louis University, demonstrates outstanding academic achievement and whose dissertation will significantly extend the body of knowledge within their discipline. Students interested in being nominated should contact their department or Ph.D. Mentor.

About the Award
Each eleven-month fellowship award carries a monthly stipend, up to 12 hours of tuition scholarship depending on the number of dissertation hours needed to reach the required 12, and health insurance. Summer enrollment, starting July 1, 2016, is mandatory. No other fellowship, traineeship, assistantship, similar appointment, or employment at the university or outside may be held concurrently.

Eligibility for Award
Applicants for the awards must have signed candidacy papers filed with the Doctoral Candidacy Advisor before the application deadline. Students receiving this award may not exceed the maximum number of years (five) for funding. Unless the program allows a sixth year. Students must be nominated by the department. Applicants must demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and a proposed dissertation that will significantly extend the body of knowledge within their discipline. Preference will be given to those applicants who have completed their prospectus the prior Spring, Summer or Fall.
