Description

The Program on Negotiation Graduate Research Fellowships are designed to encourage young scholars from the social sciences and professional disciplines to pursue theoretical, empirical, and/or applied research in negotiation and dispute resolution. Consistent with the PON goal of fostering the development of the next generation of scholars, this program provides support for one year of dissertation research and writing in negotiation and related topics in alternative dispute resolution, as well as giving fellows an opportunity to immerse themselves in the diverse array of resources available at PON.

PON Graduate Fellows are expected to participate fully in an interdisciplinary research seminar, faculty seminars, and other special events. They have the opportunity to be involved in an array of other opportunities at the PON consortium schools – Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, – and other institutions in the Boston area.
