Graduate Fellowship & Workshop

If you have any questions about the program, see the FAQ section or contact Will Wittels.

As part of our effort to support aspiring scholars interested in conducting innovative, problem-centered research, the Tobin Project facilitates a semi-annual fellowship and workshop program exclusively for graduate students.

Earlier iterations of the Tobin Project’s Fellowship and Workshop program also focused on supporting students’ research projects and providing opportunities for collaboration. In 2009, the program opened with an all-day seminar in which students discussed seminal texts of political economy and shared ideas and insights across disciplines. In 2010, the Tobin Project launched its first Democracy & Markets Graduate Student Fellowship program, offering grants to students for research related to the intersection between market structures and democratic institutions. The program expanded in 2011 into Tobin’s National Security initiative, offering grants for students whose research addresses the question of how the U.S. might better wield nonmilitary power in its national security strategy. In 2014, the Tobin Project consolidated the programs into a single forum and fellowship program for both students in security studies and students interested in the relationship between democracy and markets.

This year, we are converting the forum into a single weekend workshop to enable easier participation by graduate students from outside the northeast.
