The Opportunity

Gallup is proud to sponsor the Gallup Research Methodology Fellowship at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). This fellowship through the UNL-SRAM (Survey Research and Methodology) Program will include full tuition funding for a year toward a master’s degree (2 years) or Ph.D. (3 years) in survey research methodology and funding for a monthly stipend during the academic year.

The Research Methodology Fellow will benefit from the mentorship of Gallup Senior Scientists and be an integral part of the global influence affiliated with working on Gallup’s World Poll. This fellowship also offers the unique opportunity to secure an advanced degree in survey research methodology and work on research projects with UNL-SRAM faculty.

Candidates for this award must have an undergraduate degree and be interested in pursuing a master’s degree or Ph.D. in survey research methodology or, for those pursing a Ph.D., successful MS graduates in relevant disciplines. Upon completion of their advanced degree, Gallup Scholars are given top priority for full-time professional opportunities at Gallup. Undergraduates and graduates with completed degrees in social, behavioral, and related sciences are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates with a special interest in the design and implementation of global opinion surveys, data analysis, methodology, and writing and reporting of results should find this offer to be an excellent match for them.

Upon successful completion of the initial Gallup application and talent assessment, candidates must apply to the UNL-SRAM program to be considered for admission and to be evaluated by the UNL-SRAM program for funding.

We encourage applicants of all ages and experience, as we do not discriminate on the basis of an applicant’s age.
