Details

Fully Funded Fellowships 2019 in USA is the Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships.  The Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships aim to help original and significant study of ethical or religious values. The fellows can be in all fields of the humanities and social sciences. A major purpose of this program is to aid Ph.D. candidates in these fields to complete their dissertation work within a reasonable time frame. In addition to topics in religious studies or in ethics (philosophical or religious), dissertations might explore the ethical implications of foreign policy, the values influencing political decisions, the moral codes of other cultures, and religious or ethical issues reflected in history or literature.

The fellowship was started in 1981. Since then, more than 1,200 Newcombe Fellows have been awarded. Fellows from early years of the program are now senior faculty members at major research universities and selective liberal arts colleges, curators and directors at significant scholarly archives, and leaders and policymakers at nonprofit organizations and in cabinet-level government agencies. In the past decade, the graduates of this program have been awarded many other prestigious national honors and awards.

Benefits
