The Transdisciplinary Studies Program at the Claremont Graduate University is pleased to announce the continuation of doctoral dissertations awards for the 2010-2011 academic year.
Applications are due on 13 April 2010;  the Transdisciplinary Studies Program will announce the award winners shortly thereafter.
Transdisciplinary Dissertation Awards are designed to support research that involves at least three disciplines and includes dissertation advisors from at least two CGU Schools, Departments at the Claremont Colleges or other relevant academic institutions. 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 this dissertation award, applicants must advance to candidacy no later than Friday, June 11,  2010. 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.
Proposals for Transdisciplinary Dissertation Awards should be five to ten pages and should include the following: (1) one page summary/ abstract (2) an overview of the topic (3) a description of the intended approach (4) a statement of the reasons for adopting a transdisciplinary perspective and (5) a brief bibliography of relevant scholarship.
Transdisciplinary Dissertation Awards ranging from $3000 to $10,000 will include a $500 stipend for dissertation committee members external to the candidate's School, payable upon successful completion of the dissertation.
Please send hard-copy of proposals as follows:
