The Institute of International Studies is accepting applications for the Reinard Bendix Memorial Fellowship. This award commemorates the scholarly achievements of the late Reinhard Bendix, Professor of Sociology and Political Science at UC Berkeley.

The fellowship is given annually to students who show promise of advancing scholarship in the field of political and social theory as well as historic studies of society and politics. The Reinhard Bendix Memorial Fellowship is designed to carry on into the future Professor Bendix’s tradition of scholarship by providing financial assistance to graduate students.

All UC Berkeley graduate students in good standing who will formally advance to candidacy (will have satisfied all requirements of the Ph.D. except the dissertation) by the Fall of the fellowship term, may apply. Funds will not be available until the student has advanced to candidacy. Students must be registered with the Graduate Division for their award term. Students are eligible for support regardless of previous fellowships from other sources. The award amount is at the discretion of the committee. Requests for tuition and fee costs as separate items will not be considered.

The deadline to apply for the fellowship is March 18, 2019. For more information and the application, see the Institute of International Studies website.
