To support scholarly research and writing among qualified civilian graduate students preparing dissertations in the history of warfare, the Center of Military History (CMH) offers two or more Dissertation Fellowships each year. They are designed to support dissertations that explore the material culture of the Army or the more general areas of military history in all its many aspects. These fellowships carry a $15,000 stipend and access to the Center’s facilities and technical expertise.

Fellows are required to visit the Center two times, at the beginning and end of their fellowship period.

Topics of Study

For purposes of this program, the history of war on land is broadly defined, including such areas as biography, military campaigns, military organization and administration, policy, strategy, tactics, weaponry, technology, training, logistics, and the evolution of civil-military relations. In the selection of proposals for funding, preference is given to topics on the history of the U.S. Army. Topics submitted should complement rather than duplicate the Center’s existing projects.
