New fellowships for graduate students

The Program on Justice, Welfare and Economics at Harvard University has announced grants for 2002-03 to support graduate students whose research topics are relevant to questions of justice and human welfare. This new, interdisciplinary initiative, connects faculty and student research across the University, and intends to promote research, learning, and knowledge connecting the study of freedom, justice, and economics to human welfare and development. The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs invites proposals for support of research into ideas of freedom, equality, welfare, rights, and justice, and also proposals for support of empirical studies that bear on these topics. Full-year dissertation fellowships as well as smaller research grants are available. Priority for funding will be given to proposals that bridge at least two of the following three approaches: normative, interdisciplinary, or empirical.
