America in the World Consortium: 2024-25 Predoctoral Fellowships
The America in the World Consortium at Duke University, Johns Hopkins SAIS, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Florida seeks applications from current Ph.D. students for its Predoctoral Fellowship Program.
The America in the World Consortium (AWC) is a dynamic partnership of universities seeking to create a more vibrant debate among policy-interested scholars about America’s role in the world. We are committed to preparing the next generation to confront geopolitical challenges and advance American national interests abroad. AWC prioritizes an intellectually diverse research community and supports fellows across a variety of disciplines.
AWC offers predoctoral fellowships to advanced Ph.D. students to live and work at one of the four partner institutions for one year:
- Duke University, Program in American Grand Strategy (AGS)
- Johns Hopkins University, Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at SAIS
- University of Texas at Austin, Clements Center for National Security
- University of Florida, Alexander Hamilton Center for Classical and Civic Education
Applicants from all disciplines whose research bears directly on American grand strategy, broadly defined, are welcome to apply. However, preference will be given to applicants pursuing a doctorate in history, political science, public policy, classics, and political philosophy whose research has a strong connection to policy.
Fellows will spend the substantial portion of their time working on their own research and writing projects, while taking advantage of the many academic resources available at their institution. Additionally, Fellows will be required to play an active role in the host institution’s programs and activities. The fellowship offers a competitive stipend, access to campus facilities, and a wide range of resources on-campus.
Applicants are required to be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program and to have passed their comprehensives/preliminary/qualifying exams and advanced to doctoral candidacy at the time of application.
To apply, submit the following:
- a cover letter (in the cover letter, stipulate which consortium school or schools the candidate would wish to reside at during the fellowship);
- a curriculum vitae;
- a graduate school transcript;
- names of 3 references who would write a letter of recommendation if asked by the review committee;
- and an article or writing sample representing an existing contribution to the field of American grand strategy, broadly defined.
Direct any questions to Drayton Cullen, the America in the World Consortium Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due no later than January 5, 2024.
From the organization
The America in the World Consortium is a dynamic partnership of schools seeking to create a more vibrant debate among policy-interested academics about America’s role in the world. In 2018, a team of scholar-practitioners from Duke University, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Texas at Austin launched this consortium designed to better prepare the next generation to confront geopolitical challenges and advance American national interests abroad.
