The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS) provides fellowships to support the research of doctoral and postdoctoral students. Founded in 2006, PACS has awarded fellowships to more than 50 graduate students across many disciplines and professional schools. (Please see our alumni list for more on the current positions of former fellows and postdocs.) And we have hosted nearly a dozen postdoctoral fellows for two year fellowships.

The Center is an affiliate of the Institute for Research in the Social Sciences (IRiSS).
