Graduate Dissertation Fellowships

Multi-quarter part-time

The fellowships will provide financial support for top gender scholars as they complete their dissertations, while encouraging interdisciplinary connections for their research.

Clayman GDFs will have offices at the Clayman Institute, where they will participate in the intellectual life of the Clayman Institute as well as take part in professional development workshops during the academic year. GDFs will be contributing to the writing and research efforts of the Clayman Institute.

Fellowship funding is for three quarters: two quarters of research assistantship and one quarter teaching assistantship.

We welcome applications for the Graduate Dissertation Fellowship from all currently enrolled Stanford Ph.D. candidates , in any discipline, who have reached Terminal Graduate Registration (TGR).

One to three fellowships will be awarded for 2020-21.


The Graduate Dissertation Fellowships (GDFs) are awarded to outstanding Stanford doctoral students who are engaged in research on women and/or gender.

Applicants must be PhD candidates who have completed all requirements for the PhD other than the dissertation. The dissertation research must focus on issues of women and/or gender. Applicants are expected to be graduate affiliates of the Clayman Institute. Fellows are requird to submit a brief report of no more than one page by the end of the fellowship.
