Jim Greenfield Dissertation Fellowships

Each spring quarter, the Department invites applications from Classics graduate students for Jim Greenfield Dissertation Fellowships for the upcoming academic year. The Fellowships will normally cover expenses for either one or two quarters, including any applicable tuition, benefits and fees, and provide a stipend for the quarter commensurate with the recipient's current ASE status (typically Predoctoral Teaching Associate). These Fellowships are competitive and will be awarded on the basis of merit, progress, and research promise. Past winners are not excluded from entering the competition.

You may apply for a Greenfield Dissertation Fellowship before advancing to Ph.D. candidacy, but in order to receive the fellowship your dissertation proposal must have been approved by the faculty prior to the start of the quarter in which the fellowship begins. A letter of application -- in which you describe progress on your dissertation to date, research plans for the coming year, and realistic completion date -- should be submitted to the Chair by May 9. Applications will be evaluated in the first instance by the Committee on Graduate Admissions, Appointments and Awards, and applicants will normally be notified of the Department's decisions by May 30.

Your application letter should be 500-700 words long, and should be accompanied by a short c.v. (1-2 pages). The c.v. should specify what -- if any -- fellowship support you have received during your time at the UW (including previous Greenfield fellowships), and should indicate the quarter and year in which you (a) began graduate study in the department, (b) were admitted to the Ph.D. program, (c) advanced to candidacy, and (d) had your dissertation proposal approved by the faculty (or, in the case of those who do not have an approved proposal, when you intend to submit a proposal).

At the end of each fellowship quarter, holders of the Greenfield Dissertation Fellowship are required to submit a memo both to the Chair and to their dissertation advisor, outlining what they have accomplished during that quarter, and in particular, the progress they have made on the dissertation.
