"The dissertation fellowship allowed me the flexibility necessary for the successful completion of my dissertation. The nature of my research required travel to museums and archives in several European countries. Since this fellowship was not tied to being in a particular location, I was able to travel to over a dozen institutions to collect more archaeological and archival data than originally thought possible. The fellowship also supported the continuation of my residency at the Metropolitan Museum of Art so I could use their library and collections resources in the final stages of writing and fact-checking, making it possible for me to finish on time."

“The Dissertation Fellowship played an essential role in enabling me to finish my degree and begin my professional career. I had the flexibility to conclude my research at a limited-access archive and the freedom to write and revise the dissertation with singular focus. The generous travel stipend also enabled me to present my work alongside other new, exciting research at our national association conference. I am deeply grateful for the support, which gave me an advantageous position as a candidate on the job market and ultimately allowed me to accept my current tenure-track appointment.”
