AAUW American Dissertation FellowshipEdit
Do you have to be working on gender/women's studies to get this?
Nope - check previous winners.
Wasn't there a fee for this? How do I pay it, since it's not in the application - or have I missed something? (Nope, no fee)
Did the AAUW extend the due date? Now when you go onto the submission site it says the application is due 11/8/2018. Edit: To answer my own question, yes! The deadline has been extended. I emailed them and they responded: "Thank you for contacting ISTS! Yes, the deadline has been extended until November 8th to allow applicants to make any final edits to their applications!"

My application is no long visible on the portal. Anyone else? (1/13)
It's been gone for awhile now. I think that's normal based on conversations I've had with past applicants. Anyone have any idea whether or not the government shutdown will effect their application review timeline?

Dumbarton Oaks Junior FellowshipEdit
Deadline: November 1, 2018
Fellowships and Junior Fellowships are normally awarded for the academic year (September 9, 2019, to May 8, 2020). During this time, recipients are expected to be in residence at Dumbarton Oaks and to devote full time to their study projects without undertaking any other major activities. Except for Plant Humanities Fellowships, awards may also be made for a single term (either September 9, 2019, to January 3, 2020, or January 21 to May 8, 2020).
Support includes a stipend of $21,000 for a Junior Fellow or $35,000 for a Fellow for the full academic year; housing (a housing allowance may be offered instead of housing if Dumbarton Oaks is unable to provide accommodations; successful applicants from the greater Washington metropolitan area will not be offered housing); lunch on weekdays; and the health insurance contribution from Dumbarton Oaks. Travel expense reimbursement for the lowest available economy airfare or rail travel (or mileage if less than the equivalent economy airfare), up to a maximum of $1,100 for domestic travel or $1,600 for international travel, may be provided for Fellows and Junior Fellows if support cannot be obtained from other sources (such as a Fulbright travel grant). Reimbursement of Visa fees is also provided for Fellows, but not for dependents.
Fellowships are prorated for appointments shorter than the full academic year. Dumbarton Oaks anticipates that sabbatical salary or funds from other sources may supplement awards, particularly to Fellows. Fellows may hold other grants with the knowledge and permission of both the grantors and Dumbarton Oaks.
For junior fellowship applicants, official graduate transcripts must be postmarked by November 1 and mailed to: Manager of Academic Programs, Dumbarton Oaks, 1703 32nd St. NW Washington, DC 20007.

Gaius Charles Bolin Dissertation FellowshipEdit
1/14: This is from the Faculty Handbook (https://faculty.williams.edu/chairs-handbook/november/ ): "In late November, you will be notified about Bolin Fellowship applications from the dean of the faculty office. The Gaius Charles Bolin Fellowship was established in 1985 to underline the importance of encouraging able minority students to pursue careers in college teaching, and now members of all underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Applications are submitted and reviewed online by each department or program, with evaluation methods at the discretion of individual units. Chairs should submit a shortlist of top candidates (if any, and no more than 3) to the associate dean of faculty in early December. By mid-December, the Bolin Fellow selection committee will review the nominations from all departments and programs and approve candidates for Skype interviews. Units will conduct Skype interviews in December and early January. Names of candidates who have the enthusiasm of the unit should be forwarded to the associate dean of faculty by mid-January. We aim to appoint two Bolin Fellows each year, for two year stints."
Does this mean that interview requests have likely already been sent out?

Harry Frank Guggenheim FellowshipEdit
Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies Academy Scholars ProgramEdit
- Just a head's up that this is actually set to be more like a postdoc. So if you're a PhD Candidate, and are accepted to come, it's likely for those who expect to finish their dissertation by middle of Fall 2019 at the latest. If you wanted to use the first year of the two year fellowship to write the dissertation, it's not gonna work. But you can apply the next cycle.
