The University of California / New Center for Psychoanalysis Interdisciplinary Psychoanalytic Consortium (UC/NCP IPC) announces its annual competition for two $10,000 fellowships to aid psychoanalytically-informed research on the literary, and humanistic expressions of genocide, racism, ethnocentrism, nationalism, inter-ethnic violence, and the Holocaust.
Our Endowment supports studies in the psychodynamics of personal, group, and international crisis management, de-escalation, conflict resolution, and peace processes. The fellowships are intended to provide for dissertation research in scholarly resources, archives, libraries, academic contacts, and to provide support for the final writing for publication of a project whose major research has been completed.
Applicants should be advanced to Ph.D. candidacy in their graduate studies or be in a psychiatric residency or a fellowship program.
There is no application form. Applicants should email the following materials to
Prof. Gabriela Fried (email@example.com) by April 1, 2018.
1) A current Curriculum Vita including publications
2) A proposal describing their project and its aims, when and where it would be undertaken (not to exceed 5 single-spaced pages), with bibliography
3) One letter of reference by a faculty sponsor familiar with their work.
Winners of the fellowship will be announced at the 26th ANNUAL UC/NCP IPC MEETING, UCLA CONFERENCE CENTER, LAKE ARROWHEAD, CA (APRIL 20 – 22, 2018)
NOTE: Applicants for the Dissertation Award prize are encouraged to apply for a Conference Stipend as well, in order to attend the conference at which the fellowships will be awarded.
The application for the fellowship and stipend is available on the UC/NCP IPC Arrowhead Conference website:
