Administered by the North American Regional Science Council of the Regional Science Association International (NARSC-RSAI), the Benjamin H. Stevens Graduate Fellowship in Regional Science supports dissertation research in Regional Science. The fellowship consists of a stipend in the amount of $36,000 (U.S.), paid over a twelve-month period.

Regional Science is a multidisciplinary social science field concerned with analytical approaches to problems that are specifically urbanrural, or regional. Regional Scientists apply theoretical and empirical frameworks and methods of the social and other sciences, as well as develop new ones specifically for regional analysis and policy. Topics in regional science include, but are not limited to location theory or spatial economics, location modeling, transportation, migration analysis, land use and urban development, interindustry analysis, environmental and ecological analysis, resource management, urban and regional policy analysis, geographical information systems, and spatial data analysis.


  • Graduate students enrolled in Ph.D. programs in North America
  • Eligible students should have completed all degree requirements except for their dissertation by the time the Fellowship commences (typically on July 1).
