The International Dissertation Research Grants program is designed to support AAR student members whose dissertation research requires them to travel outside of the country in which their school or university is located. Grants are intended to help candidates complete their doctoral degrees by offsetting costs of travel, lodging, and other dissertation research-related expenses. (Grant monies may not be used for tuition, stipends, computer hardware, or meals.)
- Applicants for International Dissertation Research Grants must have been AAR student members for at least two years and must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree except the dissertation.
- Current AAR membership is required to be eligible to participate in the International Dissertation Research Grants program.
- Previous applicants may reapply for a grant; however, previous recipients of the International Dissertation Research Grants are not eligible.
- The AAR will make grants only if there is a sufficiently diverse and rich pool of applicants.
Awards are for $5,000 each.
