  Carl Albert Graduate Fellowship Program

At the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center, our commitment to the study of representative government is reflected in the graduate fellowship program. Each Fellow pursues a rigorous and individualized program of study while working closely with faculty. The fellowship is a four-year program leading to the acquisition of the Ph.D. degree in cooperation with the Department of Political Science at The University of Oklahoma. 

Carl Albert Fellows focus their program of study on fundamental issues in representative government.  The central focus is in the field of American government and includes institutions, processes, and public policy.  In addition, Fellows pursue two additional fields of study selected from among comparative politics, international relations, political theory, public administration, or public policy.

The fellowship program values both instructional development and research productivity.  Carl Albert Fellows are expected to develop original research leading to professional conference presentation and publication.  The Center’s resources enable Fellows to pursue field research where appropriate to the dissertation research design.
The fellowship package includes four years of financial support in teaching or research appointments, full tuition and fees, funded research and conference travel, summer support, participation and course work at the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research, and dissertation research funds.  In addition, successful fellows may have the option of a fifth year of support, possibly participating in the APSA Congressional Fellows Program.
Carl Albert Fellows may also avail themselves of a rich and diverse selection of other resources at The University of Oklahoma to advance their individual research and intellectual development:

Carl Albert Center Archives
Public Opinion Learning Laboratory (P.O.L.L.)
Political Commercial Archives
Center for Applied Social Research
Institute for Public Affairs

The annual application deadline for the Carl Albert Graduate Fellowship is February 1.  Applications are submitted online.
