Become a Graduate Student Affiliate of the Chicago Center on Democracy

The Chicago Center on Democracy’s Graduate Student Affiliates network is an interdisciplinary group of graduate students at the Masters and PhD levels at the University of Chicago who share research interests in topics related to democracy. Chicago Center on Democracy will convene gatherings of the group roughly once per quarter, so the members have the chance to discuss and refine ideas on relevant topics. In addition, we will provide modest financial support for Graduate Student Affiliates who wish to organize lectures or other events related to democracy.


If you are interested in being a Graduate Student Affiliate of the Chicago Center on Democracy, please answer the questions below, and you will receive an email to let you know if you have been accepted.


Please note that this network is only for current graduate students (masters or doctoral) at the University of Chicago. Students may be from any discipline, but we ask that only students whose academic focus or research is on a topic related to democracy apply, rather than those who just have a personal interest in democracy. (But the latter group should stay involved by joining our mailing list and attending our events!).
