The dissertation fellowships are for doctoral candidates who are specializing in the cognitive, clinical, and neural foundations of language.
The objective of these fellowships is to allow the recipients to devote their full time to the completion of their doctoral dissertations. The funds may be used for living expenses, health insurance, equipment, travel, or any other purpose related to the completion of the doctoral dissertation.
Supporting Document Checklist: http://www.dingwallfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/NLchecklist.pdf
A doctoral candidate must be pursuing a dissertation topic that involves both language and brain variables.
The doctoral candidate must be nominated by his/her Department Chair, Program Head, or Graduate Director. Self nominations will not be considered.
Doctoral candidates may be nominated before they have completed all non-dissertation requirements, but funding will only begin once the Department/Program Head or Graduate Director certifies that the candidate has completed all requirements for the doctoral degree except for the dissertation.
Only one nomination per year may be submitted by an individual department or graduate program. If a university has language/brain variables programs in more than one academic unit (i.e., two different departments or formal programs), each unit may submit a separate nomination.
There is no nationality or ethnicity requirement. The nominee must be a candidate for a doctoral degree in the cognitive, clinical, and neural foundations of language in the United States.
