The Science Technology and Public Policy Program and the Environment and Natural Resources Program at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government are accepting applications for the Vicki Norberg-Bohm Fellowship.

Purpose:

The purpose of the fellowship is to support Kennedy School of Government PhD candidates conducting early exploratory research on energy, environmental, or science and technology issues. The fellowship is designed to enable doctoral students to expose themselves to a wide range of researchers and research approaches early on in their training before they make their ultimate choice of a dissertation topic.

Award:

In the 2015-16 academic year, we plan to make two-three awards of $7,000 each. The award can be used for a variety of activities such as conducting field work, visiting leading scholars and research institutions, providing support for an internship, or learning a foreign language in a host country. No tuition support or indirect costs may be covered by this award. For information on recipients of the award click here.

Eligibility:

  • Applications will be accepted from students enrolled in one of the Kennedy School of Government’s doctoral programs, i.e. Public Policy, Political Economy and Government, Social Policy, Health Policy.
  • Preference will be given to students in their first two years of the program, or prior to passing their qualifying exams.

Expectations:

  • The fellow will be expected to produce a working paper reporting on the research experience and present it at a HKS seminar.
  • If a fellow is not already involved with a KSG research program or group, we will assist in making a connection for them.
