Smith Richardson Foundation World Politics and Statecraft Dissertation Fellowship
Each year, the he Smith Richardson Foundation sponsors the World Politics and Statecraft Fellowship program, an annual grant competition to support Ph.D. dissertation research on American foreign policy, international relations, international security, strategic studies, area studies, and diplomatic and military history.
Description: The fellowship’s objective is to support the research and writing of policy-relevant dissertations through funding of fieldwork, archival research, and language training. In evaluating applications, the Foundation will accord preference to those projects that could directly inform U.S. policy debates and thinking, rather than dissertations that are principally focused on abstract theory or debates within a scholarly discipline.
The Foundation will award up to twenty grants of $7,500 each.
