IES Pre-Doctoral Training Program in Education Sciences
The Committee on Education at the University of Chicago announces a fellowship opportunity for doctoral students in the social sciences with an interest in education research, funded by a federal grant from the Institute of Education Sciences. This program allows fellows to join an interdisciplinary cohort of students who follow a common program of courses, workshops, and a 2-year research apprenticeship while they are earning a PhD in their respective discipline. Accepted fellows receive a five-year package of support that includes a full tuition waiver and a generous stipend of at least $34,000 annually, as well as access to additional funds to support travel and education-related research.
Applicants to doctoral programs in the social sciences, including the Department of Comparative Human Development, are invited to apply concurrently to this program. Award of this fellowship is contingent on acceptance to a full-time doctoral program at the University of Chicago.
