The International Dissertation Research Grants program is designed to support American Academy of Religion student members whose dissertation research requires them to travel outside of the country in which their school or university is located. Grants are intended to help candidates complete their doctoral degrees by offsetting costs of travel, lodging, and other dissertation research-related expenses. Grant monies may not be used for tuition, computer hardware, or meals.
To be eligible to apply to the grant program, applicants must have:
- Current AAR Membership.
- Current status as a graduate student.
- Completed all requirements for the doctoral degree except the dissertation.
