About the fellowship
Consistent with the PON goal of fostering the development of the next generation of scholars, the Program on Negotiation Graduate Research Fellowships provide support for one year of dissertation research and writing in negotiation and related topics in alternative dispute resolution and give fellows an opportunity to immerse themselves in the diverse resources available at PON.
Each applicant should submit
- A cover letter indicating that if the fellowship is accepted, the applicant plans to reside in the Cambridge area
- A detailed description of her/his proposed research (no longer than 15 pages)
- A research budget indicating all expenses and other possible sources of financial support
- A resume
- A departmentally approved dissertation proposal, and
- Two letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the faculty member who will be supervising his or her research at the student’s home university.
While applicants are not required to work within the university or department of a PON faculty member, strong preference will be given to research that is of particular interest to one or more members of the PON faculty. Therefore, applicants who are not currently working with PON faculty are strongly encouraged, but not required, to identify a PON faculty member to whom their research is likely to be of interest, and to solicit a letter of support from that person. Please see the Research Projects section of this site for information on research projects and faculty members.Preference will be given to applicants who are planning to pursue a career in academia. Applicants will be notified via email regarding our decision within one month of the deadline.
