Call for Applications: TRANSDISCIPLINARY STUDIES DISSERTATION AWARDS
The Transdisciplinary Studies Program at the Claremont Graduate University is pleased to announce the continuation of doctoral dissertations awards for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Applications are due on Tuesday, 1 April 2014; the Transdisciplinary Studies Program will announce the award winners as soon as possible thereafter.
Transdisciplinary Dissertation Awards are designed to support research that draws upon the ideas and methods of multiple disciplines and extends our knowledge beyond any single discipline-specific domain to create new, integrative, and transformative solutions. Special consideration will be given to, but not exclusively limited to, dissertation projects whose committees engage advisors from mulitple and diverse disciplines. Criteria for awards are the importance of the topic, the synthesis of approaches from multiple disciplines, and the contribution to individual disciplines resulting from a transdisciplinary mode of inquiry. In order to be eligible for a transdisciplinary studies dissertation award, applicants must advance to candidacy no later than Friday, June 6, 2014. The dissertation director and committee members must be specified in the proposal. Students who receive CGU dissertation grants will not be eligible for Transdisciplinary Dissertation Awards; a student may accept one award or the other, but not both.
Transdisciplinary Dissertation Awards range from $3000 to $10,000.
