Graduate Fellowship Home Page

Fellows spend the first three years of the program on campus completing their Ph.D. course work and preparing for their general examinations. In cooperation with the Department of Political Science, Fellows participate in a rigorous academic program, with a primary focus on the Congress and representative government. In addition to a primary field of specialization in American Government, Fellows also have the opportunity to pursue other interests within the discipline, choosing two additional fields of specialization, including Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory, Public Administration, or Public Policy. While at the University of Oklahoma, Fellows receive academic support from the Carl Albert Center's three full-time faculty members as well as from the other professors in the political science department. Additional opportunities and resources available to Fellows while on campus include: Fellows also have the opportunity to receive advanced methodological training by attending the ICPSR's Summer Training Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research at the University of Michigan after the first or second year of the program.

Back on Campus

After one year in Washington, fellows return to the University campus for the fifth and final year of the program, during which they receive financial and academic support as they write their doctoral dissertations.
