CMH Dissertation Fellowships Opportunity

Ph.D. students interested in military or U.S. Army history or related fields, look into this Dissertation Fellowship from the U.S. Army Center for Military History. Three Fellowships are offered each year.

Deadline: January 15, 2017

~

Purpose
To support scholarly research and writing among qualified civilian graduate students preparing dissertations in the history of warfare, the Center offers three Dissertation Fellowships each year. One, funded by the National Museum of the U.S. Army, is designed to support dissertations that explore the material culture of the Army; the two others support research in the more general areas of military history in all its many aspects. In your application please specify if you wish to compete for the two general fellowships or for the Museums fellowship. These fellowships carry a $10,000 stipend and access to the Center’s facilities and technical expertise.

Area and Topics of Study
For purposes of this program, the history of war on land is broadly defined, including such areas as biography, military campaigns, military organization and administration, policy, strategy, tactics, weaponry, technology, training, logistics, and the evolution of civil-military relations. In the selection of proposals for funding, preference is given to topics on the history of the U.S. Army. Topics submitted should complement rather than duplicate the Center’s existing projects.

See the CMH website for information on eligibility, how to apply, and fellowship requirements.
