The program offers competitive Presidential Fellowships. It includes rigorous professional development, one-on-one work with faculty advisers who are experts in their fields. Scholars work together to analyze the causes and solutions to transcultural conflict and violence. Each year, new and returning students compete for 12 positions the university has allocated to the Transcultural Conflict and Violence Initiative.
Past members of the initiative have gone on to work for industry leaders, the federal government and universities in the U.S. and abroad.
Dr. Carol Winkler is the lead faculty overseeing the fellowship program. Fellows’ work consists of research, teaching, presentations and publication.
While Fellows have no expected teaching obligations, they can teach a maximum of one course per year if they choose.
Fellowships are renewable for up to four years based on timely progress in the Fellow’s degree program, a documented record of professional progress by the student and a productive contribution to the Transcultural Conflict and Violence Initiative. Renewals occur annually. Departmental assistantships and Craigie Fellowship in International Security are also available for those needing additional time and/or funding to complete a dissertation.
