Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 Pardee Center Graduate Summer Fellows Program, which offers graduate students from across Boston University an opportunity for intensive interdisciplinary research and writing on topics aligned with the future-focused research interests of BU’s Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future.
The Pardee Center conducts future-oriented, interdisciplinary, and policy-relevant research that can contribute to long-term improvements in the human condition. The 10-week fellowship (May 31 – August 5, 2022) includes a financial stipend of $6,000, structured interaction with Pardee Center-affiliated faculty and research fellows, and a collegial atmosphere that fosters peer support and intellectual growth. Summer Fellows conduct independent research and produce a substantive research paper that may be considered for publication by the Pardee Center. Fellows are expected to work each Monday through Friday for the duration of the Fellowship and to participate fully in Pardee Center activities and all Summer Fellows events.
The program is open to Boston University graduate students from all Schools and Colleges. First-year master’s and early- to mid-stage doctoral students are especially encouraged to apply. (Students completing degrees in May 2022 are not eligible.)
Proposals for any topic related to the Pardee Center’s longer-range global human development research mission will be considered. Winning proposals will be interdisciplinary in nature with a clear sense of the topic’s importance and policy relevance to the longer-range future.
The deadline for applications is close of business on Tuesday, March 15, 2022. Candidates will be notified of the outcomes by late April. Detailed application instructions are available here.
