Due May 12 | Applications for ERI Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Research in the Service of Public Knowledge

Graduate Center Early Research Initiative Fellowships in Interdisciplinary Research in the Service of Public Knowledge

The Carnegie Foundation initiative on doctoral education uses the label “steward” to convey a role for scholars that transcends accomplishments and skills: it has an ethical and political dimension. “Self-identifying as a steward,” Chris Golde of Stanford says, “implies adopting a sense of purpose that is larger than oneself” or one’s own discipline.  Students and faculty at the Graduate Center have a rich history of conducting interdisciplinary work that seeks to enrich public knowledge and public discourse.

In the spirit of this history, the Early Research Initiative invites applications for new research fellowships for Summer 2017. These $4,000 fellowships will be offered to Graduate Center Ph.D. students from any program conducting research with a distinctive interdisciplinary turn whose main question is driven by public needs and priorities. The primary responsibilities of the award winners will be to produce a dissertation proposal or a dissertation chapter by September 2017 that will be showcased on the Provost’s website, as part of a new initiative in support of this theme.  (more…)
