The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies administers a program aimed at facilitating summer international research for the senior thesis. These fellowships are available to students working in any discipline who are about to begin the second semester of their junior year on campus, and are interested in conducting summer research abroad for their senior thesis.

Up to 10 juniors will be selected through a competitive application process. Those accepted into the program will work with a PIIRS faculty member during the spring semester of their junior year to develop a proposal for summer senior thesis research abroad.

Upon successful completion of the program, including submission of a grant proposal and budget, students are awarded funds for summer research. Each PIIRS Undergraduate Fellow is eligible for $3,000–$6,000 in funding to meet the entirety of their travel and other expenses related to summer research abroad. In the spring of their senior year, PIIRS Undergraduate Fellows are obligated to give a short presentation on their fieldwork experiences to the incoming junior cohort and to be available for occasional consultation where appropriate with the new cohort.

Application Deadline: December 15, 2019

The fellowship adviser is Max Weiss, associate professor of history and Near Eastern studies.
