The Princeton Dissertation Scholars Program, launched by the Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice in 2021, offers financial and mentorship support for Ph.D. students enrolled in political science programs outside of Princeton University who have completed their course and exam requirements. Accepted applicants will receive research grants of up to $12,000 for their dissertation research.
