• Social Science Fellowship

  • This 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 Lang with a strong academic record in the social sciences. The fellowship requires the ability to work independently over the summer and through the fall semester. It provides a rare chance for students to develop their research and writing skills through individual mentoring and feedback on their work.

    The fellowship has three components:

    • A summer 2020 internship of at least 100 hours over four weeks, designed to connect students’ academic interests to organizations in related fields. See below for a list of 2019 internship sites (check back soon for 2020 opportunities).
    • Work with an NSSR PhD student throughout the fellowship to develop and conduct a research project related to the summer internship.
    • A four-credit independent study course in fall 2019, during which students work with their research mentor to complete a research paper.

    Students must also participate in a half-day orientation session in spring 2020 as well as various training sessions related to research methods. Fellows receive a $2,250 stipend from The New School for the summer internship.

    Deadline: January 6, 2020
