Fellowships and Resources
1. The Department of Sociology Henderson Research Fund
Funding is provided to successful applications for research expenses, such as research travel and accommodations, transcription, research incentives, or software. Conference travel is not considered a research expense. Award amounts vary, but maximum awards are usually around $4000.
2. The Wing C. Chan and Angelina H. Li Fund
The Wing C. Chan and Angelina H. Li fund, generously endowed by University of Chicago Sociology PhD alumna, Angelina Li, provides dissertation proposal development seed money grants (e.g. a “pre-dissertation” research grant) for Sociology PhD students. PhD students who are pre-ABD are eligible to apply. Typically, preference is given to students who are working on their dissertation proposal but we will consider strong qualifying paper research projects as well. Students are expected to use these funds for research expenses, such as research travel and accommodations, transcription, research incentives, or software. Conference travel is not considered a research expense. Students may not receive this funding more than once over their time in the program, though they are welcome to reapply in subsequent years if they are not funded in this cycle. Awards typically range from $50 to $2,500.
3. Gerald Suttles Fund
