  • --Can you apply twice for a "completion" fellowship?
  • 1/15/2011: I think that you can apply twice for a completion fellowship, as a lack of fellowship funding could legitimately slow the writing process (especially if teaching).
  • 1/15/2011: Is this wiki for fellowships taking place during the 2010/2011 year, or for applications submitted during the 2010/2011 year? If the latter, does the Mellon Dissertation Completion Fellowship notify applicants if they move on to the second stage of review or are we stuck waiting until March to hear anything?
