Ford Foundation Dissertation Fellowship Edit

Applied x5

Help! Is anyone getting the validation error "A Ph.D. or Sc.D. degree must be entered in your educational history" even though you've already entered that information into the education form?

  • I'm having the exact same issue! Right now I've got listed my institution twice, once as saying I've earned the PhD in 2018, and again as the proposed institution for the fellowship.
  • Did exactly the same as the person above
  • Did it let you submit the application with that format? I put in an e-mail to the helpline, but it was right around 5pm ET today. It would be nice to be able to submit tonight rather than waiting for their response (if one even comes) tomorrow. --> Submitted this morning. The help people did e-mail early this morning saying that my education materials were validated, but this was only after I had already implemented your workaround. Thanks for helping!!

Agghhh shouldn't we be hearing back this week about finalist status? Every other year it's been way before the 15th

No news yet (1/12 - 2:24pm PST)

Still no news!

You don't think they would wait to notify until Sunday do you?

I was wondering the same thing because I did not think they would wait until the weekend to notify us because I didn't think they worked. But I do remember for an NSF grant I applied to, they notified applicants on the weekend. I wish everyone that applied to WW good luck!

Aaaarrghh where is this email? :(

Any news?

NOPE! First time in years they don't announce as scheduled
