The Sine Institute Fellows Application is now open. Learn more.
A cornerstone of the Sine Institute is its Institute Fellows program. Each Spring semester, beginning with Spring 2019, the Institute will host six Fellows. Sine Institute Fellows will consist of innovative leaders in government, politics, journalism, nonprofits, and business. Fellows will have the ability to collaborate with renowned AU researchers and practitioners, as well as the most politically active students in the country, to uncover new policy solutions and problem-solving methods informed by evidence from the public, private, media, and nonprofit sectors. A Sine Institute Fellowship will provide you the space and resources to advance one or more policy solution, as well as a platform to share your work more broadly. Connections with AU Faculty, Institute Advisory Board Members and Fellows, and others you will meet through the program offer the potential to catapult your ideas forward.
Institute Fellows are selected via a Sine Institute selection committee.
Terms of Appointment
Fellows are required to be in-residence for multiple days per week of the semester, including office hours (6 hours per semester). Throughout the semester, each Fellow will hold 5 study group meetings. Fellows will participate in two forums in their area of focus, as well as events and programming activities organized throughout the semester by the Sine Institute and American University. Fellows will be compensated $50,000 per semester, without benefits.
Institute Fellows will be selected via a Sine Institute selection committee. Applications due on September 27, 2019.
