The Gittell Dissertation Fellowships, made possible by the Gittel Chair endowment, provides support for advanced students on the CUNY campuses and their scholarly activities in urban issues and community engagement, furnishing resources so they may engage in research and activities leading to both academic publications and enhanced public policies and community practice.

The program focuses on the social sciences working on areas that concerned Marilyn Gittell, with an emphasis on cities, urban politics, public policy, democratic and civic engagement, social movements, citizenship and governance, or community practices, broadly conceived, both domestically and abroad.
