The Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) welcomes applications from current PhD candidates for its 2022–2023 International Policy Scholars Consortium and Network (IPSCON) cohort.

Supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, IPSCON is dedicated to helping current emerging scholars from different disciplines navigate between the worlds of scholarship and policy in their research, teaching, and careers. Over the course of the academic year, IPSCON participants may engage in a three-day retreat in the Adirondacks, a two-day policy workshop in Washington, DC, and a webinar during the semester that brings together students and preeminent scholars and current and former senior government officials. IPSCON members will also have access to the IPSCON alumni community for networking and mentorship.

IPSCON is looking for excellent applications from current PhD students. Our ideal candidates will have finished or be in the process of finishing their comprehensive exams when they take up the fellowship. We welcome applications from candidates from a diverse array of intellectual backgrounds, including history, political science, public policy, information and data science, biology, engineering, public health, environmental studies, etc., who are interested in making their research more accessible to policymakers and/or serving in government. Preference will be given to current PhD students with a demonstrated interest in policy-relevant research on a key topic in international affairs. Applicants who are committed to promoting a sense of belonging and contributing to an equitable and inclusive learning environment for all are strongly encouraged to apply.

Application Components and Deadline: 
Applicants should send a copy of their CV and a 500-word essay explaining their interest in IPSCON and career objectives to IPSCON_SAIS@jhu.edu no later than Monday, February 28, 2022, at 11:59 PM ET. Candidates will be notified of the outcome of their applications by April 1, 2022.
