2010-2011 IGCC Dissertation Fellowship Competition

February 12, 2010

The UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC), a University of California multi-campus research unit, supports dissertation-level graduate research on causes of international conflict and opportunities for international cooperation. In a departure from previous years, IGCC seeks to support dissertation work on three broad themes more closely linked to its current research agenda.  The three theme areas are The Changed Institutional Environment, Nonconventional Threats, and Nuclear Threats and Nuclear Energy. This opportunity will provide a $15,000 stipend and up to $3,000 in research/travel.

Doctoral students enrolled in the University of California, including J.D./Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., and M.D. with thesis, are eligible to apply for the dissertation fellowship. Applicants must advance to candidacy by June 30, 2010, to receive funding. U.S. citizenship is not required. IGCC fellowship funds are not intended for UC student fees and tuition.

The competition is open to all academic disciplines, however, in order to meet IGCC relevancy criteria,

  • the proposed research must fit into one of the three IGCC themes; and
  • the international sources and/or consequences of the phenomenon studied in the dissertation must be an integral part of the project.

Multidisciplinary approaches and policy-relevant work are encouraged.

Interested PhD students can apply for these fellowships on the IGCC website at http://igcc/ The deadline for applying for these fellowships is March 22, 2010.
