The program encourages timely completion of the Ph.D. A grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation supports this program.
The total award of up to $38,000 includes a stipend plus additional funds for university fees and research support. In addition to the monetary support that the fellowship offers, Dissertation Completion Fellows are able to apply to participate in a seminar on preparing for the academic job market. The seminar takes place over three days in the fall of the fellowship year.

- Applicants must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. except the dissertation (obtained ABD status) by the application deadline.
- The program is restricted to graduate students who have progressed no further than the sixth year of the degree program. (This includes time for a master’s degree obtained en route to the Ph.D.)
