ICGC Fellowships

The Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change offers fellowships that provide financial support for graduate students at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.

Nominees should have backgrounds and interests that identify them as outstanding students who are clearly committed to the interdisciplinary study of the Global South in the context of global change. We encourage nominations of exceptionally capable students—especially, but not only, from the Global South and groups traditionally underrepresented in graduate education.

Directors of graduate studies should review our guidelines for nominating students for an ICGC Fellowship.

The Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change (ICGC) seeks to foster an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural community of faculty and students committed to studying global change, especially as seen in the Global South and in communities of color within North America.

The Center fosters cross-disciplinary and faculty-student collaboration, and organizes interdisciplinary faculty-student seminars and workshop series for fellowship holders around major theoretical, comparative, and methodological issues related to the Global South.

Scholars, policy makers, and activists address contemporary international developments in formal lectures and informal discussion series open to the public.  

In addition, ICGC offers a graduate minor in Development Studies and Social Change (DSSC).

The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
