The aim of these dissertation fellowships is to support highly promising graduate students who are conducting research and writing empirically-grounded, social science dissertations examining the origins, manifestations, and/or consequences of generosity. Proposals must clearly demonstrate how the research described in them will directly and noticeably contribute toward a greater understanding of generosity. Doctoral students in sociology, psychology, economics, political science, and anthropology with dissertation projects that clearly fit the stated criteria are welcome to apply.
We are particularly interested in projects that aim to investigate one of three key aspects of generosity:
* The sources, origins and causes of generosity
* The manifestations and expressions of generosity
* The consequences of generosity for both the givers and receivers involved
