Apply to be a 2019 Social Science Fellow!


Do you have an interest in combing theory with research and practice? Do you have an independent research project related to social science that you would like guidance with? Do you want to earn $2,250 to do that research?

If you answered yes to any of the above, apply to this year’s Social Science Fellowship program.

Deadline: January 4th 2019 


The fellowship provides a unique opportunity to combine research, theory, and practice. It is available to current second-year, third-year, and fourth-year (BA/BFA only) students at Eugene Lang College with a strong academic record in the social sciences. The fellowship requires the ability to work independently over the summer and throughout the fall semester.

The fellowship has three components:

1. A summer 2019 internship of at least 80 hours over four weeks, designed to connect students’ academic interests to organizations in related fields. For example Governor Cuomo's Office of Constituent Affairs or The Museum of the City of New York Future City Lab.

2. Work with a NSSR PhD student throughout the fellowship to develop and conduct a research project related to the summer internship.

3. A four-credit independent study course in fall 2019, during which students work with their research mentor to complete a research paper.
