Global Political Economy Project Pre-Doctoral Fellowship

The Global Political Economy Project (GPEP) at the Mortara Center for International Studies at Georgetown University invites applications for pre-doctoral fellows during the 2024-2025 academic year. The Global Political Economy Project seeks to encourage innovative work by comparative and international political economy scholars around issues of the global economy.   Doctoral candidates’ topics might include how global markets and any of the following interact: security and geopolitics, industrial policy, the green transition, economic inequality, digital technology, race, or democratic backsliding, among others. Fellows will receive a nine-month stipend of approximately $36,000, as well as university benefits. This program is funded by the Hewlett Foundation’s Economy and Society Initiative.

Fellows will primarily pursue their own research as well as participate in the broader activities of GPEP, which will include workshops on emerging topics in political economy as well as professional training and mentoring opportunities. The fellowship is in-person. By the completion of the term, fellows will be expected to provide a short research agenda proposal recasting a core political economy issue through the GPEP lens. The fellowship includes a 9-month stipend.
