The Ash Center awards two dissertation research fellowships to Harvard Kennedy School Ph.D. candidates or other Harvard University students in related fields. The aim of this fellowship is to support well-defined doctoral work from Harvard University students focused on innovations in public participation and political participation in non-democracies.
About the fellowship
Pre-doctoral fellows join the Ash Center’s academic community and participate in the Democracy Fellows weekly seminar. The fellowship affords doctoral candidates the time and space to work on completing their dissertations without the obligation of teaching at a critical time in their program. For more information about the Democracy Fellowships, see our Five-Year Retrospective.
