Student Research Funding at IBGC

There are many opportunities for students to engage in original research and analysis here at The Fletcher School. Below are a sample of offerings:

Student Research Fund

The Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC) offers Fletcher degree candidates the opportunity to apply for funding in support of original research objectives, including coursework, business plans, and thesis or dissertation projects. Funding is limited and competitive, and requires an application, committee review, detailed expense reporting, and a final product that can be published on the IBGC website.

Global Research Fellowships

IBGC also offers the opportunity for a select number of exceptional Fletcher students to conduct original research and analysis around the world as a part of the IBGC Global Research Fellowship. The program was created in 2013 and has sent student teams into the field for fully funded, summer-long, immersive study in Myanmar, Turkey, Kenya, and Indonesia during its first two years.
