The Greater Good Science Center offers annual fellowships to graduate students whose research relates to its mission: investigating the roles that social connection, kindness and community play in the happy, meaningful lives of individuals and society.
This year they are offering four fellowships: three GGSC fellowships (up to $10,000), and one Hornaday fellowship (up to $15,000)
Former fellows have come from departments of psychology, integrative biology, anthropology, American studies, sociology, neuroscience, urban studies, and other departments; the school of public health, education, social welfare, and Haas business; and the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program.
Previous GGSC fellows have secured top research and teaching positions at universities nationwide, providing a significant boost to the science of compassion, resilience, altruism, and happiness. You can read about recent GGSC fellow Craig Anderson’s trailblazing work on the social benefits of awe in this Sierra Club magazine article.
The window for fellowship applications is Tuesday, February 16th to April 6, 2015. Apply at the Good Science Center (GGSC) website.
