The Pre-Dissertation Research Grants (PDR) provides support or partially support expenses related to preliminary dissertation research for graduate students in the School of Social Sciences (excluding Anthropology) at Rice. All subject areas and methodologies within the School will be considered equally. The proposals must be written with a multi-disciplinary audience in mind, as they will be evaluated by the School’s Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) steered by the Dean of Social Sciences and a seven-member panel, which consists of one tenured faculty member from each department.
