The Center for the Study of Representation brings together faculty and students from a broad range of disciplines to facilitate learning about issues of representation broadly construed.
Through conferences, public keynotes speakers, workshops to hone research skills, and research fellowships for both undergraduate and graduate students, we hope to create a community of scholars who share knowledge and collaborate on projects relating to: citizens’ political participation, the representative nature of Congress, presidency and the bureaucracy, and the impact of public policies on our polity.
The Center offers three fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at UC Berkeley:
- Charles H. Percy Undergraduate Grant for Public Affairs Research
- Mike Synar Graduate Research Fellowship
- John Gardner Fellowship
The Percy Grant and the Synar Fellowship are made possible by generous donations from Bill and Patrice Brandt.
