American Bar Foundation & Northwestern University Doctoral Fellowship Program

Modified: September 13, 2016

The following fellowship provides the opportunity to extend funding beyond the initial 19 quarters for students. If these fellowships are awarded through the first to fifth year, students are eligible to receive up to three additional quarters of University funding during their sixth year.

The American Bar Foundation (ABF) and Northwestern University (NU) are committed to developing the next generation of scholars in the field of law and social science. The purpose of the fellowship is to encourage original and significant empirical and interdisciplinary research on the study of law and inequality.

Applications are invited from outstanding Northwestern graduate students who are or will be candidates for Ph.D. degrees by June 1, 2017. Doctoral research must be in the general area of sociolegal studies or involve social scientific approaches to the law, legal institutions, or legal processes. The research must address significant issues in the field and show promise of a major contribution to social scientific understanding of law and inequality. Students from underrepresented minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications are due by December 15. Download the PDF for more information.
