After 10 years of running a national student competition and offering fellowships and workshops to graduate students across the humanities and social sciences, the Dissertation Proposal Development Program is no longer offering fellowships to individual graduate students as of fall 2016. Rather, through its new University Initiative, the DPD Program will now work exclusively with universities to help them develop interdisciplinary dissertation proposal development training programs for graduate students on their own campuses.
