Henry A. Kissinger Predoctoral Fellowship

Henry A. Kissinger Visiting Scholars Program

Closes: March 15, 2024 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time
(GMT-4 hours)

The Henry A. Kissinger Visiting Scholars Program awards 1-2 predoctoral fellowships funded for one year. Predoctoral Kissinger Visiting Scholars must be enrolled in a PhD program, have completed all coursework, and be working on a PhD dissertation focused on the role of the United States in the conduct of statecraft, diplomacy, and grand strategy. Kissinger Visiting Scholars fellowships will be awarded to candidates with outstanding proposals that require access to the Henry A. Kissinger Papers or other archival holdings related to American diplomacy at Yale (http://web.library.yale.edu/digital-collections/kissinger-collectionhttp://guides.library.yale.edu/american-diplomacy-primary-sources). They will pursue original research for academic publication using these sources.

Kissinger Visiting Scholars will work with an active academic community of postdoctoral associate fellows and predoctoral fellows, as well as Yale faculty in history, political science, and other disciplines. A member of the Yale faculty will serve as a mentor during the fellowship and will meet on a regular basis with the fellow.

Predoctoral Kissinger Visiting Scholars are granted opportunities to present their research and are expected to regularly attend colloquia. Fellows are also expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Program in Grand Strategy, International Security Studies, and the Jackson School for Global Affairs by participating in its activities and development. 

All Predoctoral Kissinger Visiting Scholars must be in residence in New Haven or its environs during their fellowship year. Eligible candidates must be in the dissertation stage of their PhD, and winners will be expected to use the award to make substantial progress in writing their dissertation. Applications from non-U.S. citizens are welcome, but successful applicants bear final responsibility for all immigration-related issues.

Fellows are provided a stipend of $36,000, a $3,000 research budget, and shared office space. Fellows will not be eligible for Yale financial aid or degrees, nor will they be allowed to enroll in or teach classes.
