PIIRS Undergraduate Fellowships
The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies administers a program aimed at facilitating summer international research for the senior thesis. The fellowships are available to students working in any discipline who are about to begin the second semester of their junior year on campus and are interested in conducting summer research abroad for their senior thesis.
Up to 10 juniors will be selected through a competitive application process. Those accepted into the program will work with a PIIRS-appointed academic adviser during the spring semester of their junior year to develop a proposal for summer senior thesis research abroad (including a budget). These students are also required to attend meetings on the logistics of engaging in international research.
Upon approval of the research proposal by the PIIRS director, a PIIRS Undergraduate Fellow will be eligible for $3,000–$6,000 in funding to meet the entirety of their travel and other expenses related to summer research abroad. The PIIRS Undergraduate Fellows are obligated, in the spring of their senior year, to give a short presentation on their field-work experiences to the incoming junior cohort.
The application deadline is December 12, 2014.
To apply, students must submit an application that includes a short statement outlining their senior thesis research interests; a statement of relevant course work, international experiences, or skills for carrying out research (for instance, foreign language skills); a copy of the most recent transcript; and one letter of recommendation from a professor or instructor familiar with the student’s work. Please do not send additional writing samples. All materials should be sent via email to Carole Frantzen.
