The Tobin Project is now accepting applications for our 2017 Graduate Fellowship and Workshop and Prospectus Development Workshop from graduate students working on real-world problems related to the Tobin Project’s four core research areas: Economic Regulation, Economic Inequality, Institutions of Democracy, and National Security. We are especially interested in supporting innovative, interdisciplinary research that addresses major challenges facing society. Our graduate student programs are open to graduate students both within and outside of the Tobin scholar network. Please circulate widely.
The Graduate Fellowship and Workshop supports students with small research grants and a collaborative workshop in which students can share and develop their research-in-progress with the Tobin Project staff and other fellowship recipients. For this program, we welcome applications from students of all levels in all social science disciplines and allied fields.
The Prospectus Development Workshop brings together a small group of graduate students in the early stages of research development as well as Tobin staff and discussants from the Tobin network for two days of critical and creative discussion. At the workshop, participants will focus on criteria for developing high-impact research questions. Each participant will also have the opportunity to present his or her research question for feedback. The Tobin Project covers the cost of travel and lodging. Participants also receive a small honorarium. For this program, we welcome applications from doctoral students in all social science disciplines and allied fields.
The deadline for applications is February 25, 2016. The Spring Graduate Student Workshop will be held April 5-7 and the Fall Graduate Student Workshop will be held September 13-15. The Prospectus Development Workshop will be held June 14-16. Application instructions and more information on the Graduate Student Workshop are available here.
