King Center’s Predoctoral Research Fellow Program (Stanford University) Deadline January 31, 2022

Posted by Tim on December 20, 2021 in Academics, Graduate School Programs, Research Information and Opportunities

The King Center’s Predoctoral Research Fellows Program is a full-time, two-year postbaccalaureate program designed to prepare individuals for careers in academic research focused on issues related to global development. This multidisciplinary program operates in partnership with the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Fellows are appointed as non-matriculated graduate students and are expected to fully engage in the intellectual life at Stanford University. Fellows will work with King Center Faculty Affiliates on research projects and can take courses at Stanford University for credit. The fellowship offers tuition, health insurance, and a living stipend.

The King Center’s Predoctoral Research Fellows Program particularly encourages applications from students from low- and middle-income countries, as well as from others whose backgrounds and experience would contribute to the diversity (broadly defined) of the program. The King Center is committed to creating inclusive research environments and to fostering the growth of the next generation of researchers in global development. We are a proud participant in Pathways to Research and Doctoral Careers (PREDOC).

How to apply

We are currently accepting applications for the Predoctoral Research Fellows Program. The deadline to submit your application and supplemental materials for the program is January 31, 2022.
