Since 1983, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies has offered visiting scholarships to support interdisciplinary global studies through a cooperative society of academics. This well-known scholarship programme allows you to study where you need to, advance your personal studies, and collaborate with other academics and professionals from all around the globe.
As a visiting fellow, you will do research at the Kellogg Institute on subjects of democracy and human development, share your findings with the Notre Dame scholarly community, and have the opportunity to publish in Kellogg’s peer-reviewed Working Paper Series.
With a $500,000 endowment, Frank B. Kellogg established the Frank B. Kellogg Foundation for Education in International Relations at Carleton College in 1937. At the time, Kellogg was a trustee of the college. The endowment initially supported two full-time professors and one half-time professor, as well as six students: four at Carleton College and two Carleton students studying abroad.
The Kellogg Institute for International Studies is an interdisciplinary community of scholars and students from across the University of Notre Dame and around the world that promotes research, educational opportunities, and links related to two critical topics in our world: democracy and human development.
By addressing normative and scholarly concerns that embody the values reflected in Catholic social thought, the Kellogg Institute contributes to Notre Dame’s Catholic mission.
The Kellogg Institute for International Studies applies the best of interdisciplinary research to research topics relevant to contemporary societies worldwide, particularly democracy and human development.
