Kroc doctoral students are prepared for a wide range of scholarly, teaching, and professional positions, including interdisciplinary academic positions; positions in which employers seek expertise in the peace and conflict subfields of anthropology, history, political science, psychology, sociology, or theology; and scholar-practitioner positions in intergovernmental, governmental, or nongovernmental organizations.
The Kellogg Institute for International Studies offers fellowships to incoming Notre Dame doctoral students in a variety of disciplines. Kellogg Ph.D. Fellows are active members of the Institute’s scholarly community and become eligible to apply for additional funding. Learn more »
