ICNC’s 2019 Research Fellowship

Deadline: 2 June 2019
Open to: doctoral, post-doctoral and junior faculty
Benefits: USD 2,000 and USD 8,000


ICNC’s Doctoral, Post-Doctoral and Junior Faculty Research Fellowship enables selected researchers to carry out research on civil resistance and/or conduct a study that can benefit from a civil resistance perspective. The fellowship is expected to lead to a peer-review publication in the form of a journal article, book or a book chapter. In some cases, and by mutual agreement, the research could be published as part of the ICNC Special Report [www.nonviolent-conflict.org/icnc-special-report-series/] or Monograph series [www.nonviolent-conflict.org/icnc-monograph-series/].


Eligible applicants must be one of the following:

– Junior faculty on a tenure-track position and not yet tenured;

– Part-time and full-time post-doctoral researchers. In exceptional circumstances, we can consider applications from post-doctoral candidates who are currently unemployed and unaffiliated but who can demonstrate that they are actively looking for employment in their area of specialization;

– Lecturers or assistant professors who are working to secure a permanent faculty appointment, or to advance to an associate professor or a senior lecturer position; or

– Doctoral students at an accredited university inside or outside their home country.


Each fellowship award will be between USD 2,000 and USD 8,000.  In addition to the stipend, the fellowship includes several hours of scholarly mentorship provided by one of the ICNC’s Academic Council members [www.nonviolent-conflict.org/icnc-academic-advisors-council/]. Mentorship is set up when ICNC matches an awardee with an academic advisor interested in the awardee’s research topic.
