a) Applicants already holding the PhD degree at time of application:
You must have received your degree between January 1, 2016 and September 15, 2017.
The receipt of the PhD is determined by the date on which you fulfilled all requirements for the degree at your institution, including the defense and filing of the dissertation.

You will be asked to upload a document on the application site with evidence of completion of all requirements for the PhD degree (either your formal PhD certificate or a degree confirmation letter from your advisor). 

b) Applicants who are ABD (All But Dissertation) at time of application:
If you will not meet the September 15, 2017, deadline for receipt of PhD but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree, including defense and filing of dissertation, by June 15, 2018, you may still apply for a postdoctoral fellowship provided you have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (approximately half).

You will be asked to upload a letter on the application site confirming your “progress to degree” from either your Department Chair or your Director of Graduate Studies.

Please note that ABD candidates who are awarded a fellowship will be asked to provide a document from either the Registrar or Dean of their Graduate School by June 15, 2018, to confirm completion of all requirements for the PhD.
