Fellows attend workshops in the spring and fall of the fellowship cycle, which provide a framework for pre-dissertation research and guide dissertation proposal writing. In the summer months between workshops, DPDF fellows carry out exploratory field research on their topics to evaluate issues of feasibility and methods of investigation. The DPDF program covers necessary costs for workshop participation and up to $5,000 for summer research.
