Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation offers graduate students ten or more dissertation fellowships who would complete the writing of a dissertation within the award year. The fellowship is offered annually and designed to support doctoral students with the completion of his or her thesis in a timely manner and are only appropriate for students approaching the final year of their Ph.D. work.
Level of Study: Doctoral Programme.
Study in: Any Country
Value of the Fellowship
The fellowship is funded with the sum of $20,000 each are designed to contribute to the support of the doctoral candidate.
These grants are made to Ph.D. candidates who are entering the dissertation stage of graduate school. Thus, it means that fieldwork or other research is complete and writing has begun. If analysis and writing are not far enough along for an applicant to be confident that he will complete the dissertation within the year, he should not apply, as the application will not be competitive with those that comply with this timetable.
In some disciplines, particularly experimental fields, research and writing can reasonably be expected to be completed within the same year, and in those cases it is appropriate to apply.

However, the foundation also accept mailed application using its previous application method – a printable PDF form, provided it arrives at the foundation’s office no later than February 1, or the following Monday if February 1 falls on a weekend.
