In recognition of Ralph P. Hummel’s intellectual contributions to public administration, social policy, political science, and organization theory, the Institute of Applied Phenomenology in Science and Technology (IAP) has established the Ralph P. Hummel Doctoral Research Scholarship Fund to be used to support interpretive doctoral dissertation research.
Criteria and Review Process for Applications
Applicants are limited to doctoral students working on dissertations using phenomenological or other interpretive approaches in public administration, social policy and planning, political science, organization theory, and related fields. Funds may be used to support dissertation research, including travel expenses and presentations of the research at professional conferences. Applicants are asked to submit a 1500 word summary of the dissertation prospectus that does not include any reference to the author, as well as an approved copy of the prospectus defense signed by the chair of the faculty committee.
The IAP will award the winner up to $1000. In addition, PATNet has agreed to waive conference registration fees for the winner in the year the award is received as well as the year completed research is presented at its conference. Completed applications are due on December 1, 2016 and must include one version of the paper with all identifying references to the author removed. All applications are blindly reviewed by an award review committee. The award will be announced no later than February 15, 2016.
You should email your applications to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Award winners will be asked to acknowledge in publications based on the dissertation that a portion of the funds used to support their research came from the Ralph P. Hummel Doctoral Research Scholarship fund sponsored by the Institute of Applied Phenomenology in Science and Technology and the Public Administration Theory Network. IAP is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit research and think tank organization, of which Ralph Hummel was a founding member. All donations are tax deductible.
