Pardee Fellows Program

The Pardee Center Fellows Program

The Pardee Center Fellows Program is designed to deeply involve highly capable students in learning advanced research methods and applying them to real-world research. Specifically, Pardee Center Fellows will develop knowledge and expertise around using the Pardee Center's signature IFs tool, literature review methodologies, and various research techniques, This experience is intended to enhance the professional capabilities of the Fellows while simultaneously contributing to the work of the Pardee Center.  

Each year, we aim to select three to five exceptional students with a strong interest in quantitative long-term integrated assessment modeling, literature-based research, and policy-engaged analysis.  Fellows will receive tuition support (if eligible) plus hourly pay and will be embedded in teams of researchers doing work for real-world policymakers, such as groups within the United Nations or African Union. The research is primarily focused on long-term forecasts of sustainable development using the International Futures (IFs) tool. This is a program designed to be a two-year commitment.

We encourage eligible students who meet the criteria to apply for the Pardee Fellows Program, and we look forward to receiving applications from those who are passionate about making a meaningful impact in the fields of integrated assessment modeling, qualitative research, and policy engagement. This opportunity promises to be both intellectually rewarding and professionally enriching for successful candidates.  

Applications for the 2023-2024 Academic Year cohort are closed. To apply for a spot in the 2024-2025 cohort, please indicate your interest on your Korbel graduate application.
