2013 International Dissertation Research Grant Award Winners

The American Academy of Religion is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2013 International Dissertation Research Grants program:

  • Lauren Osborne, of the University of Chicago Divinity School, who won the international dissertation research grant; and

  • Sara Singha, of Georgetown University, who was awarded the Selva J. Raj Endowed International Dissertation Research Fellowship.

The annual grants, designed to support AAR student members whose dissertation research requires them to travel outside of the country in which their school or university is located, are intended to help candidates complete their doctoral degrees by offsetting costs of travel, lodging, and other dissertation research-related expenses. Lauren Osborne will conduct research in Muscat, Oman, and Sara Singha will travel to Islamabad, Karachi, and Lahore, Pakistan, for her research.

The grants are awarded on a competitive basis by a panel of senior AAR members selected by the AAR President. For more information about our international dissertation research grant program, click here.
