Inviting doctoral students conducting research on international security to submit papers to the Harvard International Security Conference to be held on October 14-15, 2017. The conference is designed to provide doctoral students with feedback on their research from peers and faculty outside their home institutions, and build cross-institutional relationships among the next generation of international security scholars.


  • Graduate student participants will be compensated up to $500 for their travel and/or hotel expenses.
  • Participants also have the option of staying with a student host in the Cambridge area, which the conference leadership will coordinate.


  • The conference will bring together doctoral students and faculty members from political science and public policy programs.
  • Research papers may focus on any substantive topic and employ any research methodology, so long as the core question is directly tied to international security.
  • Applicants are asked to submit a full research paper along with a separate copy of the abstract.
  • The paper will be evaluated based on progress and quality.
  • Papers may be single- or co-authored.
  • Although doctoral students at any stage are welcome to apply, we anticipate the workshop being especially useful for students on or nearing the academic job market.


DEADLINE: September 5 2017
