The International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) offers nine to twelve months of support to graduate students in the humanities and social sciences who are enrolled in doctoral programs in the United States and conducting dissertation research outside of the United States. IDRF promotes research that is situated in a specific discipline and geographical region but is also informed by interdisciplinary and cross-regional perspectives.

The SSRC-IDRF Book Fellowship was established in 2007 to provide professional assistance to alumni of the International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) Program who are beginning the process of writing a scholarly monograph, based on research conducted while on an IDRF grant.
