The Global Security and Cooperation Program of the Social Science Research Council offers four new opportunities for research and training on the underlying causes and conditions of conflict and insecurity. There are no citizenship or nationality requirements.
Grants for Research Collaboration in Conflict Zones (GRC)
Applications are invited from teams of researchers working or living in a zone of widespread or intractable violent conflict for short research projects of 4-6 months in length. Each team must have a designated team leader with at least 3 years of professional experience.
Research Fellowships for Professionals Working in International Affairs (RFPW)
Practitioners (NGO professionals, activists, journalists, lawyers etc.) may apply to conduct a research and writing project for 8-18 months under the supervision of an academic mentor in a university or research institute. A significant piece of writing is expected as a result. Applicants should have 5-15 years of experience working in issues related to international security and cooperation.
Postdoctoral Fellowships on Global Security and Cooperation (PFGSC)
Applications are invited from scholars holding a Ph.D. or its equivalent for 8-18 months of support. The first half of the fellowship is to be spent working in a nongovernmental, international or multilateral organization involved in peace and security issues. The second half must be spent conducting a research project informed by that experience.
Dissertation Fellowships on Global Security and Cooperation (DFGSC)
Applications are invited from students working towards the Ph.D. or equivalent for a two-year fellowship. The first year must be spent working at a non-governmental, international, or multilateral organization involved in peace and security issues outside the applicant's country of residence. The second year must be spent conducting a research project related to that experience.
