The IGLP is pleased to announce that applications are now open for the Institute’s 2014-2015 residential Fellowship Program. Fellowships typically begin July 1st and run through June 30th. The application deadline for the 2014-2015 program is April 30, 2014.
Inaugurated in 2006, the IGLP Fellowship Program offers doctoral and post-doctoral fellowship support to a small number of scholars pursuing research in areas related to the IGLP’s ongoing work. Through the Fellowship Program the IGLP seeks to encourage the development of progressive and alternative ideas about international law, society and political economy by supporting original, provocative and challenging intellectual work that might not otherwise find support from mainstream institutional resources and which contributes to the emergence of new approaches to international law and global social justice.
The Institute welcomes all interested doctoral and post-doctoral scholars who are currently pursuing research in the areas of global law, economic policy, and social justice to apply for our 2014-2015 residential Fellowships. Alumni of IGLP: The Workshop are especially encouraged to apply.
While in residence in Cambridge, IGLP Fellows will have the opportunity to pursue and develop their own research as outlined in their proposal. In addition, IGLP Fellows will devote up to half of their time to assisting the IGLP Faculty Director in the planning and organizing of the Institute’s academic programs and initiatives, including the IGLP’s January Workshop in Doha and June programming at Harvard.
2014-2015 Fellows will be awarded a competitive stipend commensurate with experience, and taking into consideration other research support held by Fellows. The Fellowship also includes an office at the Institute, a computer and printer, access to the Law School’s Libraries as well as other libraries at Harvard. With the permission of the teaching faculty member, IGLP Fellows may audit Law School courses on a non-credit basis.
Applicants should submit:
- A résumé or CV that clearly lists degrees received and current academic affiliation
- A 2-3 page description of current research and the proposed research project to be carried out during the fellowship period
- Two letters of recommendation, including a letter of support from the applicant’s doctoral or other academic supervisor
