Applications Open for IGCC Pre- and Post-doctoral Research Fellowships

December 06, 2023


IGCC is committed to supporting new generations of international peacemakers and problem-solvers. Our fellowships and grants stimulate independent research and multidisciplinary collaboration and encourage research in emerging areas.

Applications are now open for IGCC’s pre-doctoral Dissertation Fellowship and our Washington, D.C.-based Postdoctoral Fellowship on Technology and Security.

IGCC’s doctoral fellowships enable students to conduct fieldwork; focus on writing and polishing their dissertations; and work on “translating” their research for general audiences through interviews, podcasts, and blog posts. IGCC funding currently supports research on migration, marine conservation, post-conflict violence, global health, foreign aid, global supply chains, military history, and refugees. The Dissertation Fellowship program was founded in 1991, and since then IGCC has funded over 550 fellows and provided over $6 million in funding across those fellows. Alumni of the program include a long list of notable figures, including the current Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs, Ely Ratner.

Postdoctoral fellowships offer researchers the opportunity to work on emerging topics and regularly participate in policy seminars and research colloquia. IGCC’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in Technology and International Security, supported jointly by IGCC and Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories, supports fellows whose research generates new theoretical and empirical insights into the relationship between technology, national security, and the global security environment.
