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


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.

DEADLINE ANNOUNCEMENT! GSAS Research Support Grants- Travel and Dissertation

Happy September GSAS!

Fall is here, which means sweater-weather, classes, and GRANTS! The Graduate School has funding opportunities that you should certainly take advantage of and the Research Support Grant is one!

This year the fall deadline for RSG grants is Friday, October 7, 2016.

The application will be open by Friday, September 23, 2016.

Research Support Grants come in two types:

  • Travel Grants (open to M.A.s and Ph.D.s) and
  • Dissertation Expense Grants (Ph.D.s only).

Please see our website here for the details of both opportunities. Remember that all our grants are reimbursement based, which means you have to apply prior to travel and are then reimbursed for costs when you return.* 

Questions about the application process or eligibility? Email me at and I’d be happy to help you!
*The only exception to the reimbursement process is/can be airline travel– Fordham uses Omega Travel Service which can work with you if you plan ahead far enough.
