The BIED Society has a premier Fellowship Program open to post graduates, graduates, and undergraduates. Each is geared to promote and grow the fellows in different areas. Each also feeds into a different publication. The research fellowship is designed to help get published in a peer reviewed journal. The Policy Fellowship is designed to work through tough international problems in a diverse realm of policy concerns. By using a comparative three continent approach, all policy issues cover several models and examples.
Fellows agree to a two year Fellowship Program designed to grow and test desired skill sets, focus and refine your specialty, and add to your resume important professional accomplishments.
Two year committment
Complete four written papers (approximately one every six months). The first and third papers are on your own-any topic you desire to help you define your specialty. The second and fourth papers will be group research projects with your regional conference and your study abroad conference.
one weekend conference in year one (Regional Conference)
one Study Abroad in year two (International Conference)
Micro Research Team (MRT)
In year one, every Fellow is required to go to a regional weekend conference. These are typically two to three day events to give fellows an opportunity to present original material, get published, network with other IR professionals, and get assigned to a MRT to work through a new problems or IR issue.
Research Tiger Teams (RTT)
When you go to a Study Abroad International Conference, you get assigned to a RTT that meets during meal times on the cruise to solve the worlds problems. This team is carefully designed to tie interests and different experience levels to compliment each others desired goals. The group picks a topic, assigns research, and the senior fellow drives the process, facilitation, and sits as the first line editor.
