Teaching and Research
Fellows have the opportunity to serve as Graduate Assistants supporting research and teaching. The teaching opportunities are supplemented by teaching seminars for Fellows, which are sponsored by the Center.
Fellows have frequent opportunities to engage in original, collaborative research with the faculty at the Center. Most fellows present several papers at professional meetings and many prepare papers for publication during their period of study at the Center. Financial and academic support is provided to Fellows to encourage such collaborative – or individual – research endeavors. Travel support is provided for research and professional meeting participation, and publication is encouraged. Fellows frequently participate in the annual meetings of the major regional associations and in the annual meeting of the American Political Science
As they complete the fellowship, Carl Albert Fellows are prepared to be productive research scholars, in part because of the resources and support provided by the Center.
