This fellowship, in support of dissertation research in regional science, is awarded annually in memory of Dr. Benjamin H. Stevens, an intellectual leader whose selfless devotion to graduate students as teacher, advisor, mentor, and friend had a profound impact on the field.

Regional scientists apply theoretical and empirical frameworks and methods of the social and other sciences, as well as develop new ones specifically for regional analysis and policy. Eligible students should have completed all degree requirements except for their dissertation by the time the fellowship commences. A requirement of the fellowship is that the recipient has no duties other than dissertation research during the fellowship, although the recipient may hold other fellowships concurrently. Applications from students working in any area or any PhD program are welcome as long as their dissertation research addresses a research question in regional science. The fellowship consists of a stipend in the amount of $30,000, paid over a twelve-month period.

The Schmidt Science Fellows program aims to create a new generation of scientific leaders. Our goal is to give the world’s best aspiring scientific minds a broader perspective, the ability to engage in an interdisciplinary way, and the opportunity to make a lasting impact in society. Through a combination of group sessions at some of the world’s leading universities and a special postdoctoral study in a field different from their existing expertise, fellows are exposed to new topics, new ways of thinking, and new people that will help guide their future paths to success. The program allows students with extraordinary records of leadership in STEM to spend one year conducting research tangentially related yet pertinent to their doctoral work in a world-class laboratory and participate in a series of global seminars. Fellows will enjoy a stipend of $100,000 and their conference expenses covered in full. Northwestern may nominate up to five students. Graduating PhD candidates and individuals who have completed their PhD in the past year in a STEM field are eligible to apply.

To be eligible for a Junior Fellowship, a candidate must be at an early stage of his or her scholarly career. Men and women interested in any field of study are accepted. Most Junior Fellows receive the PhD just prior to the start of the fellowship. If still pursuing the PhD, Junior Fellows should be at the dissertation stage and prepared to finish their degrees within a year of becoming fellows. If already a recipient of the degree, they should not be much more than a year past the PhD at the time the fellowship commences. Junior Fellows are selected for their resourcefulness, initiative, and intellectual curiosity, and because their work holds exceptional promise. They are free to devote their entire time to productive scholarship. They may undertake sustained projects of research or other original work, or they may devote their time to the acquisition of accessory disciplines, so as to prepare themselves for the investigation of problems lying between conventional fields. Because of this complete freedom of choice and action, it is important that candidates should have demonstrated their capacity for independent work. Applicants are nominated, typically by their dissertation advisor.
