NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants

Description (by DGS)

Support for direct costs of doctoral research; through the NSF sociology program. It is sometimes possible to apply for joint funding with other divisions of NSF. Our students have been very competitive for these fellowships in recent years.

Application deadlines are typically October 15 and February 15 of each year. However, the de facto deadline is at least 1 weeks earlier, because DDIG proposals must be routed through US Sponsored Projects Services
