This includes, but is not limited to: sociology, social work, psychology, anthropology, nursing, economics, vocational rehabilitation, counseling, and political science. These fellowships are not intended for individuals who are pursuing a dissertation research project. Students may be accepted at any point in their schooling. This includes the periods following acceptance but before beginning the first year and the period immediately following the final year.

Applications from women, members of minority groups, and people with disabilities are especially encouraged. U.S. citizenship is not required; however, the project must be conducted in the U.S. The $3,000 stipend is for conducting a 3-month summer project.
