Seventy junior scholars awarded International Dissertation Research Fellowships. The 2019 cohort is indicative of the wide range of research projects, academic disciplines, and regional diversity that characterize the SSRC.
The International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) Program supports the next generation of scholars in the humanities and humanistic social sciences pursuing research that advances knowledge about non-US cultures and societies. Since its inception in 1997, the IDRF program has funded more than eleven hundred projects, with research spanning the globe. The IDRF program is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
