Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics

The Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics seeks graduate fellowship applications from Brown University doctoral students writing and researching topics at the intersection of philosophy, politics, and economics. The Fellows Program consists of postdoctoral, undergraduate, and graduate fellows. 

The Center will host two Brown doctoral students working in the humanities and social sciences for a year-long research fellowship. Candidates’ work should cover two or more of the primary areas of philosophy, politics, and economics.

Recipients of the fellowship will receive office space at the Center, located at 25 George Street, a travel/research supplement of $1000, and participate in a year-long by-weekly work-in-progress Fellows Seminar over lunch where they will have an opportunity to present their research to the community of fellows. 

To be eligible, students must have advanced to candidacy by the start of the fellowship and be on a fellowship year as provided by the graduate school.
