Graduate program in development and inequality at Brown University

New graduate program in development and inequality at Brown University


The Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University is home to the Graduate Program in Development (GPD). The program is supported by a multi-year NSF IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training) grant. GPD promotes and supports interdisciplinary training and research on development for students pursuing a PhD in any of Brown’s social science departments (Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, and Sociology). All PhD students at Brown receive five years of guaranteed support, but students who are selected to be GPD trainees are eligible for increased benefits, including additional fellowship support and research funds. GPD also offers a wide array of interdisciplinary courses, methods modules, workshops, and institutional connections to many partners in the developing world. In addition, the GPD program hosts visiting faculty, organizes conferences, and provides seed grants for collaborative research.  We believe that GPD provides a unique graduate training experience that builds on disciplinary strengths while providing students the resources and opportunities to develop interdisciplinary research skills. The program is supported by over 25 faculty members from a wide range of departments with active research interests in development. As co-directors of the program, we are happy to answer any questions you or any of your students might have. For a full description of the program and a list of faculty, please see our website: www.watsoninstitute.org/gpd/.If you have questions, please send email to GPD@brown.edu
