Claremont National Scholars Program
The Claremont National Scholars program is offered by Claremont Graduate University for doctoral students who are pursuing interdisciplinary studies. The program encourages students to transcend disciplinary boundaries while working towards a Ph.D in any of the subjects offered by Claremont Graduate University’s graduate schools, including Arts and Humanities, Behavioral and Organizational Sciences, Community and Global Health, Educational Studies, Information Systems and Technology, Management, Mathematical Sciences, Politics and Economics, and Religion.
The program awards full tuition and a $20,000 annual stipend to several students who have achieved at about the summa cum laude level.
Your candidacy as a transdisciplinary scholar will be considered based on your nomination from a faculty member at a U.S. institution you attended, as well as research and projects undertaken during your academic career, and your transdisciplinary research goals at CGU. By transdisciplinary, we mean migrating across disciplines as theoretical or applied questions demand; Or jumping boundaries between theory and application, as when addressing a problem outside the academy leads to new discoveries in academic terms.
Eligibility: Candidates should have or expect to have a bachelor’s or master’s degree from a US college or university by Fall of the year that they enter the program. Candidates should also have achieved a high level of academic success, particularly in regards to interdisciplinary research.
