The Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation invites doctoral students to apply to the Urban Doctoral Fellows program for 2019-2020. The Fellowship provides support to doctoral students whose research seeks to increase our understanding of urban settings.
Applications are due by 5:00 pm, Friday April 26.
This Fellowship provides funding of up to $1000 per Fellow to cover registration, hotel, meal and transportation costs for presentations at academic conferences. It includes twice-monthly lunchtime meetings to review peer papers and presentations, as well as discussions of how distinct disciplines engage in urban research.
