America in the World Consortium: 2023-24 Predoctoral Fellowships
The America in the World Consortium at Duke University, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Texas at Austin seeks applications from current Ph.D. students for its Predoctoral Fellowship Program.
AWC offers pre-doctoral fellowships to advanced Ph.D. students to live and work at one of the three partner institutions for one year:
- Duke University, American Grand Strategy (AGS) Program
- Johns Hopkins University, Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at SAIS
- University of Texas at Austin, Clements Center for National Security
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 political science, public policy, or history whose research has a strong connection to policy.
Applicants need to have passed their qualifying/comprehensives/preliminary exams and advanced to doctoral candidacy at the time of application.
Successful applicants will be able to 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.
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. The organization is 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.
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 referees 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.
Note that applicants are required to be currently enrolled in a PhD program and to have passed their qualifying/comprehensives/preliminary exams so as to be in the dissertation writing phase.
Direct any questions to Drayton Cullen, the America in the World Consortium Program Manager at email@example.com.
The application deadline is January 3, 2023.
