Fellowships

Predoctoral Fellowships

The Smith Richardson Predoctoral Fellowship in Security Studies brings outstanding advanced doctoral candidates at other universities to New Haven for a year in residence at ISS.  Working in the field of security studies, these scholars take advantage of ISS’s academic resources to improve and complete their research.  They receive a $25,000 living stipend and an additional $3,000 of research support to faciliate their work in archives across the globe.  Here in New Haven, they contribute through discussion groups, colloquia, and yearly conferences held on campus.

Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Henry Chauncey Jr. Postdoctoral Fellowship provides recent Ph.D. graduates with the opportunity to teach at Yale while conducting research in the field of grand strategy, broadly defined.  Thanks in part to the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, our postdocs receive a stipend of $55,000, research funding of $5,000, and office space at ISS.  Additonally, they are given the chance to present their work at the weekly ISS Colloqium in International History and Security.

The Kenneth R. Miller, Jr. Fellowship

This fellowship was created in 2004 in honor of Major Kenneth Miller, Jr., U.S. Army Special Forces, who graduated from Yale in 2002.  Major Miller, a Foreign Area Officer, died on active duty in June 2003.  Supported by the Friends of ISS, this fellowship recognizes his leadership skills, his service to his country, and his contributions to the International Relations and ISS communities at Yale.  The fellowship, which offsets the costs of Yale tuition not covered by the recipient’s branch of the armed services, is awarded to active duty U.S. military personnel pursuing a Master’s Degree at Yale.

ISS Marine Corps Fellowship

ISS has been fortunate to host an officer of the Marine Corps since 2012.  Through this program, an active high-ranking officer joins ISS for a year in order to study international history and security studies at Yale.  The USMC Fellow may take courses related to security studies and public policy while at the same time taking part in ISS’s lively exchange between military and civilian security experts.
