Institute for Humane Studies Fellowship
January

http://www.theihs.org/ContentDetails.aspx?id=491

The Institute for Humane Studies awards scholarships up to $12,000 for undergraduate or graduate study in the United States or abroad. Last year IHS awarded 120 scholarships to outstanding undergraduate, graduate, law, and professional students who are exploring the principles, practices, and institutions necessary to a free society through their academic work. Applications will be considered from those who will be full-time graduate students or undergraduate juniors or seniors in the 2011-12 academic year and have a clearly demonstrated research interest in the intellectual and institutional foundations of a free society. Previous award winners have come from fields as diverse as economics, philosophy, and literature, and have conducted research on a variety of issues such as:

  • impediments to economic growth in developing countries,
  • market-based approaches to environmental policy,
  • the role of patient autonomy in bioethics,
  • the legal development of privacy and property rights in 18th-century England, and
  • the relationship between U.S. presidential politics, fiscal policies, and economic performance.
