The Katharine Turner Dissertation Fellowship is designed to enable doctoral candidates in the Department of English working in the field of American Literature to finish writing their dissertations.
The recipient will receive a cash award of approximately $12,000 (disbursed 1/2 in Fall and 1/2 in spring) in addition to tuition and health insurance costs.
Applicants who want to be considered for the 2019/20 Katharine Turner Dissertation Fellowship should submit a letter of application, including a work plan for the proposed year of support, curriculum vitae, and a two-page description of the dissertation explaining its significance to the field. Applicants should ask their dissertation chair to write a letter of support that will address the applicant's strengths and potential to complete the dissertation in a timely manner.
The Awards Committee will also consider the following criteria when reviewing for the fellowship: 1) how expeditiously the student has progressed through the program; 2) has the student adhered to the PhD Timeline; 3) how many chapters of the dissertation have been written; 4) has the student presented at conferences or published in journals; 5) is it likely that the student will graduate by the end of the fellowship.
Applications should be addressed to Karen Adams, Director of Graduate Studies and submitted in one PDF packet to Sheila.Luna@asu.edu by February 1, 2019.
Results of the competition will be announced in March.
If you have any questions, please contact Sheila Luna.
