The Ronald F. Inglehart Scholarship Fund

Created in memory of pioneering CPS scholar and mentor, Ronald F. Inglehart, this fund supports research and travel by early career scholars to study comparative politics, with a preference for graduate students travelling internationally.

Ron’s research transformed the way that social scientists understand the role of human values and cultures in societies worldwide, and his ideas have been central to our understanding of public opinion and cultural change. In addition to his impressive research accomplishments, Ron was known to be modest and down-to-earth, generous with his time, and an excellent citizen of the university. The fund honors his professional legacy and his many contributions to students and fellow political scientists.

Application Process

Applications will be available starting in February each year. Information about the competition, award amount, and eligibility will be available on this website.
