Announcing the 2020-21 Undergraduate Fellows Program

September 29, 2020

We are excited to announce the Undergraduate Fellows Program 2020-21 as a joint initiative of the Institute of International Studies and the Center on the Politics of Development. The program is a year-long fellowship that presents a unique opportunity for a highly selective group of undergraduate students to work side-by-side with IIS/CPD affiliated faculty and graduate-level research associates on conducting original research. Fellows will acquire key skills such as statistical programming, map-making, and the knowledge necessary to study the analysis of international affairs, and/or the politics of developing countries. In addition, they will get access to workshops where scholars from UC Berkeley and other top universities present their projects which provides unique insight into the theories and methods used by experts, and exposure to the larger interdisciplinary research community. Fellows will attend seminars including MIRTH, Global History, Global Security Policy and Comparative Politics Colloquium. Each fellowship comes with a $1000 stipend.
