Each year the Franke Institute for the Humanities awards approximately four Residential Dissertation Completion Fellowships. There is no separate application for a Franke Residential DCF, but to be considered for these fellowships students must commit to being in residence during the fellowship year, and attend meetings with other Franke fellows.


Only Ph.D. candidates in the humanities are eligible. Please note that this competition requires nomination by the student’s department. Departments set earlier internal application deadlines for students, so they can review and nominate to the fellowship review committee. Please check with your department for more information.
