Harvard Law School in the USA invites applications for the Institute of Global Law and Policy Residential Fellowship Programme in from 2019-2020.
Inaugurated in 2006, the Fellowship Program offers full or partial doctoral and post-doctoral fellowship support to a small number of scholars pursuing research in areas related to the IGLPs ongoing work. The number of Fellowships awarded each year depends upon the available funding.
Applicants considered for Fellowships are those whose work is challenging, original and focuses on progressive and alternative ideas within international law.

Fellowships typically begin July 1st and run through the following June 30th.

- With the permission of the teaching faculty member, IGLP Fellows may audit Law School courses on a non-credit basis.
The Institute welcomes all interested doctoral and post-doctoral scholars who are currently pursuing research in the areas of global law, economic policy, and social justice to apply for our residential Fellowships. Alumni of IGLP Workshops are especially encouraged to apply.
