Open Call: The 2018-2019 Darat al Funun Dissertation Fellowship
Darat al Funun-The Khalid Shoman Foundation is pleased to announce the open call for its 2018-19 dissertation fellowship.

The fellowship provides financial support of up to ten thousand US dollars to Ph.D. candidates in the humanities and social sciences. One to two fellowships will be granted each year. The fellowship duration must range from 4-6 months of residency at Darat al Funun in Amman.
