Security Studies Pre-doctoral Fellowship 2014

The Strauss Center invites applications from all disciplines, both the social and natural sciences, as they pertain to relevant topics to the Center’s program focuses (see Areas of Research below). The Strauss Center encourages applications from women, minorities, and citizens of all countries.

The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law will offer up to two pre-doctoral fellowships in security studies for the 2014-2015 academic year. The Strauss Center pre-doctoral fellowship program aims to stimulate the development of the next generation of researchers and thought leaders and encourage them to engage in policy-relevant research on issues related to security studies.

Pre-doctoral fellows are encouraged to present their research within and outside the Center, participate in the research activities of the Center, attend and take an active role in seminars and conferences, engage with younger scholars, and immerse themselves in the greater University community during their appointment.


Pre-doctoral fellowships are available to advanced PhD students, with preference given to those who have made substantial progress towards the completion of their dissertation. Pre-doctoral fellows are expected to work on — and ideally complete — their doctoral dissertations during the fellowship.
