The Institute for the Study of Societal Issues has announced a call for applications for the 2017 – 2018 Graduate Fellows Program.
The Graduate Fellows Program is for UC Berkeley doctoral students who have completed at least three years of graduate studies at Berkeley and are interested in contemporary issues related to processes of social change in U.S. cities.
In an expansion of the Graduate Fellows Program, the Joseph A. Myers Center for Research on Native American Issues will provide funding for one additional UC Berkeley doctoral student who has completed at least three years of graduate studies and whose research concerns issues confronting Native Americans in the United States today.
All Fellows participate in a weekly training seminar and receive a yearly stipend of $10,000. Selected applicants with another fellowship or stipend of $18,000/year or more will receive a $5,000 stipend from GFP.
In its forty years of existence, the Graduate Fellows Program has provided an interdisciplinary research and training environment as a complement to, and resource for, graduate programs in the social sciences and professional schools. Over 150 graduate students have successfully completed their doctoral studies and gone on to distinguished academic careers that have significantly influenced their respective disciplines and fields on issues of social stratification and inequality.
