Doctoral, Post-Doctoral and Junior Faculty Research Fellowship on Civil Resistance

The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC) announces its 2017 Doctoral, Post-Doctoral & Junior Faculty Research Fellowship in support of research and writing on civil resistance.

For 2017, $20,000 in total has been allotted for the program. Each fellowship award will be between $2,000 and $10,000. The deadline to apply is April 9, 2017.

In addition to a stipend, the fellowship includes several hours of scholarly mentorship provided by one of the ICNC’s Academic Council members. Mentorship is set up when ICNC matches an awardee with an academic advisor interested in the awardee’s research topic.

Your application must include the following:

1. Proposal

For Doctoral applicants:

A 1000-word Ph.D. thesis proposal which clearly explains 1) how the Ph.D. research conducted so far would benefit from a new or greater focus on civil resistance; 2) how a selected civil resistance focus relates to at least one of the ICNC priority research topics; and 3) how the stipend on civil resistance would help enhance both the applicant’s thesis and contribute to the field of civil resistance more broadly.

For Post-Doctoral and Junior Faculty applicants:

A 1000-word proposal for a journal article, book or another peer-review publication that clearly explains 1) how the writing would benefit from a new or greater focus on civil resistance; 2) how a selected civil resistance focus relates to at least one of the ICNC priority research topics and 3) how the ICNC stipend would help enhance the quality of the publication and contribute to the field of civil resistance more broadly;

For both types of applicants: 

2. A 1000-word literature review on civil resistance. A literature review must highlight works on civil resistance that the applicant sees as most pertinent, and explain those works’ theoretical and empirical relevance to, and significance for, arguments, analysis, findings and/or cases that are part of the applicant’s Ph.D. thesis or future peer-review publication. Prior to preparing the literature review applicants are strongly encouraged to review the following resources with the list of publications on civil resistance:

 A number of electronic publications on civil resistance as well as a comprehensive list of topics related to civil resistance studies are available on the ICNC universal e-classroom. To learn how to register, click here.

3. Budget justification. A detailed budget proposal for research that contains expected costs and an explanation of how the requested funds will be used to support or conduct the research. The ICNC fellowship does not support tuition expenses. The ICNC fellowships range between $2000 and $10000.

 4. CV

 5. Documents

 For Doctoral applicants:

  • A copy of the most current Ph.D. transcript indicating grades earned thus far
