Doctoral Dissertation Research Grant Program

March 30, 2016 Karen Popp DissertationsGrants

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awards 15 grants to PhD students whose dissertation proposal discusses policy-relevant urban research. The program strives to give students the resources to complete their dissertation on housing and urban development issues in a feasible amount of time. The Doctoral Dissertation Research Grant program is intended to stimulate policy-relevant urban research in several ways: by encouraging doctoral candidates to pursue research topics in community, housing, and urban development; by assisting doctoral candidates in the timely completion of the dissertation research; and by providing an arena for new scholars to share their research findings. Past proposals include the effect of public housing resident involvement on crime deterrence, and the evolution of comprehensive community development practices.

Award: HUD competitively awards one-time grants of $15,000 per student each year to approximately 15 doctoral candidates currently enrolled in accredited programs.

Deadline: July 11, 2016
