Snyder Visiting Scholars

Third-year students are invited to apply for the position of Snyder Visiting Scholar at the Research Centre for International Law at Cambridge University, England. The late Dr. Earl A. Snyder, an alumnus of the  Maurer School of Law and Cambridge University, generously provided support for a graduating student from Indiana University to work at the Research Centre for International Law of Cambridge University during the fall (typically mid September to mid December).

The fellowship provides for air fare and a small stipend; campus housing is available to rent. The Centre contemplates that the Snyder Scholar will be in residence for about three months and will conduct extensive research, primarily of his or her own choosing. Because the Centre expects the SnyderScholar to work on an international law project, applicants must have had international law or equivalent courses. The Snyder Scholar should also be committed to further study of or practice in international law.Demonstrating a commitment can be done by listing courses taken in the international law area, research in international law topics, employment in the international arena, knowledge of languages, career goals,
extracurricular activities and so on. 

Interested applicants should provide a resume; a statement of commitment to, including your experience with, international law; and a personal research agenda that you hope to complete while at Cambridge (at least two full pages). Email your completed application to the Office of Student Affairs at by Friday, March 27, at 5 p.m. The preliminary selection committee will consist of Maurer School of Law faculty andsenior staff, and the school's nominee will be forwarded to the director of the Centre at Cambridge. The successful applicant will be announced by mid-April.
