Schroeder Summer Graduate Fellowship Program in Political Science

The Schroeder Summer Graduate Fellowship Program is made possible by a generous gift from William A. and Paul W. Schroeder. The aim of the program is to enhance the quality of rigorous research on topics that fall within on-going research programs at the Cline Center by helping graduate students in Political Science at the University of Illinois generate original and publishable research at an early stage in their graduate career. To achieve these objectives the Schroeder fellowship provides a stipend during the summer covered by the award, office space at the Cline Center, computer support, and access to the Center’s data archives and staff.

Preference for this award is for students who have successfully completed at least two years in the Political Science Ph.D. program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, although any UIUC political science graduate student is eligible to be considered for this fellowship. In addition applicants are strongly encouraged to propose research projects that utilize or enhance Cline Center data resources (e.g., SPEED civil unrest data, Rule of Law data, the center’s Global News Index).

To learn more about this program please contact Kelly Hammond by email at or by phone at  217-265-7845.
