About PON Graduate Research Fellowship Programe
The Program on Negotiation Graduate Research Fellowships are designed to encourage young scholars from the social sciences and professional disciplines to pursue theoretical, empirical, and/or applied research in negotiation and dispute resolution. Consistent with the PON goal of fostering the development of the next generation of scholars, this program provides support for one year of dissertation research and writing in negotiation and related topics in alternative dispute resolution, as well as giving fellows an opportunity to immerse themselves in the diverse array of resources available at PON.
The Program on Negotiation Graduate Research Fellowships allow doctoral students who are writing their dissertations to be part of the PON community for one year. Successful candidates will receive:
- A stipend of $20,000
- Communal workspace and related facilities at PON
- Library and other privileges at Harvard.
PON encourages students from diverse theoretical and research traditions to apply. PhD students currently enrolled in programs outside of the United States are also welcome to apply.
PON Graduate Fellows are expected to participate fully in an interdisciplinary research seminar, faculty seminars, and other special events. They have the opportunity to be involved in an array of other opportunities at the PON consortium schools – Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, – and other institutions in the Boston area.
PON Graduate Research Fellows are responsible for obtaining their own health insurance.
Doctoral candidates in the fields of economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, international relations, public policy, urban planning, business, and law are encouraged to apply. Doctoral candidates must have completed all degree requirements except for the dissertation. Graduate law students are eligible in connection with scholarly research undertaken to satisfy their SJD thesis requirements.
