The IDRF competition promotes a range of approaches and research designs beyond single-site or single-country research, including comparative work at the national and regional levels and explicit comparison of cases across time frames. The panels will use academic records, essays, letters of recommendation, the application itself, and other appropriate materials as the basis for determining the extent to which candidates meet the eligibility requirements and the selection criteria. The program invites proposals for dissertation research conducted, in whole or in part, outside the United States, on non-US topics. Proposals that identify the United States as a case for comparative inquiry are welcome however, proposals that focus predominantly or exclusively on the United States are not eligible.

Eligibility will be at the discretion of the IDRF program, depending on completed research time and funding. The 7567 competition is now closed.
The awards will be made to individuals who, in the judgment of the review panels, have demonstrated superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level, show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students. Applicants who have completed significant funded dissertation research in one country by the start of their proposed IDRF research may be ineligible to apply to the IDRF to extend research time in the same country. The IDRF program expects fellows to remain at their research site(s) for the full nine- to twelve-month funding period. While only 67 of the 68 applicants were women, the three applications which rose to the top were all submitted by young women — attesting to the growing role of women in science and technology.
