The FINRA Foundation Dissertation Completion Fellowship program seeks to expand the pipeline of researchers from historically underrepresented backgrounds in the U.S. professoriate. To achieve that goal, the FINRA Foundation Dissertation Completion Fellowship provides an award of up to $40,000 to advanced doctoral candidates within their last year of Ph.D. dissertation writing to support completion of their dissertation research and writing.

Applicants must have completed their doctoral coursework and be in the final year of writing their dissertation focused on topics such as financial capability, investor protection, access to financial services and the capital markets, fintech services, or understanding the systemic barriers to financial inclusion. Graduate study may be in any academic discipline.
