Arlen Specter Center Research Fellowship

The Arlen Specter Center of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia will be awarding a $5,000 research fellowship to two scholars interested in doing research in the Senator's archival collection, which is housed right here at Pitt. Throughout his 30 years in the US Senate, Specter was involved in many aspects of government, including Supreme Court nominations, medical research funding, and criminal justice reform. He was also highly active in foreign affairs, traveling the world from the Middle East to Cuba, all in an effort to promote democracy and diplomacy. If you're an interested graduate or post-grad student with a focus in political science, international affairs, history, or any related field, get in touch with us for information on how to apply before the October 31st deadline.
