Ph.D. Fellowship Opportunities
Below you can find links to fellowship opportunities for current Ph.D. students.
Carl Albert Fellowship
The highly competitive and prestigious Carl Albert Graduate Fellowship program is for students who are interested in studying legislative politics while earning a Ph.D. in political science. CAC Fellows all share a work space while Center faculty actively mentor graduate students from day one by incorporating them into ongoing research projects. This lab model of training means students pick up the language and professional tools they will need much more quickly, while learning across cohorts and from one another.
The generously-funded program includes:
- up to four years (including summers) of financial support as a teaching or research assistant, plus an additional year with no work obligations to complete the dissertation. The current annual stipend amount is $19,000;
- all degree-related tuition and fees, plus health insurance;
- an allowance to cover books each semester;
- funding to attend the ICPSR summer methods program;
- funding to attend academic conferences; and
- funding for dissertation-related travel and research assistance.
CRCM and CES&S Fellowships
Housed under the umbrella of the National Institute for Risk & Resilience, the Center for Risk and Crisis Management (CRCM) and its sister Center, the Center for Energy, Security & Society (CES&S) are applied, interdisciplinary research centers located on the Norman Research Campus.
CRCM and CES&S offer competitive Graduate Research Assistantships (GRA) to conduct research and data analysis and assist our affiliated faculty across a variety of externally-funded projects that span multiple policy areas. These Graduate Research Assistantships enable students to augment classroom learning; develop new analytical, research and writing skills; and conduct research on complex policy problems for institutions and clients.
CRCM and CES&S Graduate Research Assistants also receive annual travel support to offset costs associated with enhancing their ability to successfully complete their doctoral program and prepare for their chosen career paths. Travel support is generally used to attend and present at academic conferences nationwide.
Basic student health insurance and a tuition waiver are benefits that accompany these GRAships.
