Two CRF Fellowship awards will be made to individuals who have demonstrated superior potential in any area of family research.
One Dissertation fellowship in the amount of $10,000 will be given to a UMass Amherst Ph.D. student who exhibits the potential to make an outstanding contribution to the field of family research. The 2015 competition is open to individuals who have advanced to Ph.D. candidacy for the dissertation (ABD or all but defended). The individual will use the award to support his/her dissertation research. The individual will work on their own independent family research project under the advisement of a faculty member. (Candidacy should be achieved by the start of your fellowship year; you should have completed all of your masters coursework and moved into doctoral status)
