The RIAS will host a research seminar for current Ph.D. students whose work covers the history, politics, or culture of the United States.

Since 2003, the RIAS and its predecessor, the Roosevelt Study Centre, has organized annual seminars for PhD students pursuing research in its areas of interest. Past participants have included students from leading universities across Europe and the United States.
