Kenen Fellowship


The Kenen Fellowship provides an opportunity for those holding full-time positions at a university or research organization to spend a year on leave at Princeton.

Spend a year on leave at Princeton IES.

Named in honor of esteemed former Princeton IES colleague Peter B. Kenen.

Kenen Fellows conduct their own research on topics in international economics and participate in the intellectual life of the department. They receive a fixed stipend, a package of benefits, and a modest allocation for research expenses. More senior fellows may combine the fellowship support with other sources of funding to replace up to the full amount of their academic-year salaries at their home institutions.

Who is Eligible and How to Apply

Researchers eligible for leave from a full-time position at another university or institution are eligible to apply. We do not review applications from researchers who cannot secure leave from a home institution.

In a typical year, applications for the Kenen Fellowship are due in January and should be submitted online through AHire. Use Requisition D-24-ECO-00007. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, the names and contact information for two references, and a statement of 750 words or less describing the research they would undertake while visiting Princeton.

The Fellowship is open to any Ph.D. economist who currently holds a full-time position in a university or a research organization.
