Grant of the Week: NISS 2022 Dissertation Grants Program

Alana Venable | Apr 26, 2022

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the National Aeronautics Space Administration’s Fellowships in Aerospace History.


The National Institute of Social Sciences (NISS) invites nominations for its 2022 Dissertation Grants Program. NISS Dissertation Grants are designed to support outstanding Ph.D. students who need resources to complete doctoral work that promises to significantly advance their fields of study. Any accredited U.S. university that awards doctoral degrees in the social sciences is eligible to nominate a graduate student for an NISS Dissertation Grant.

For 2022, NISS seeks nominations in the fields of Anthropology, Economics, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. Interdisciplinary projects that include one or more of these fields as a major component may also be considered. 

Nominations are due no later than Monday, May 2, at 5:00 pm Eastern Time.


NISS anticipates making two to four grants in amounts ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 each. NISS may consider granting larger amounts on a case-by-case basis.

End: May 2, 2022
