The Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia announces its fellowship program for individuals completing their dissertations on American politics, foreign policy and world politics, or the impact of global affairs on the United States. The program provides up to eight $20,000 grants to support one year of research and writing.
Along with the fellowship grant, the Miller Center assists the fellow in choosing a senior scholar from their field to serve as a “dream mentor." This mentor will suggest relevant literature to frame the project, read the fellow's work, and give general advice on research. The Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia also invites applications for the Wilson Carey McWilliams Fellowship. The McWilliams Fellowship supports a graduate student in political science or history whose dissertation combines the special blend of Political Theory and American Politics.
