Inaugurated in 2006, the Fellowship Program offers full or partial doctoral and post-doctoral fellowship support to a small number of scholars pursuing research in areas related to the IGLPs ongoing work. The number of Fellowships awarded each year depends upon the available funding. Applicants considered for Fellowships are those whose work is challenging, original and focuses on progressive and alternative ideas within international law. Often, work of this nature is not supported by mainstream institutional resources and the IGLP strives to give opportunities for diverse ideas to flourish. IGLP Fellows are integral members of the Institute and provide valuable programming insight and assistance with the execution of our conferences and workshops.
The Institute welcomes all interested doctoral and post-doctoral scholars who are currently pursuing research in the areas of global law, economic policy, and social justice to apply for our residential Fellowships. Alumni of IGLP: The Workshop are especially encouraged to apply. Fellowships typically begin July 1st and run through June 30th. Check back in December for more information about applying for the 2016-2017 IGLP Fellowship.
Fellows are awarded a competitive stipend commensurate with experience, and taking into consideration other research support held by Fellows. The Fellowship also includes a shared office at the Institute, a computer and printer, access to the Law School’s Libraries as well as other libraries at Harvard. With the permission of the teaching faculty member, IGLP Fellows may audit Law School courses on a non-credit basis.
To apply, applicants must submit:
- A résumé or CV that clearly lists degrees received and current academic affiliation
- A 2-3 page description of current research and the proposed research project to be carried out during the fellowship period
- Two letters of recommendation, including a letter of support from the applicant’s doctoral or other academic supervisor
