Columbia Graduate Student Fellowships

The Graduate Fellowship Program offers Columbia University students an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of research and practice in conflict resolution and social change. Fellows conduct interdisciplinary research projects addressing conflict, violence, development and/or sustainable peace.

Due to travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, AC4 has restructured its Graduate Student Fellowship to adapt to the current situation. Providing funding for the innovative and interdisciplinary research projects on peace, conflict, and sustainability is one of the real highlights of our work at AC4, and we are pleased to be able to continue to offer this support to graduate students across Columbia University.

AC4 will provide research funds of up to $1000 for qualified interdisciplinary research that is able to be conducted remotely and without travel. Projects should be focused on peace, conflict, sustainability, and/or social justice and can include projects in the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and the arts. Funds can go towards research material expenses including but not limited to study participant incentives, software, digital project hosting, supplies for arts or humanities projects, etc.
