Institute Fellows Program

The Sine Institute Fellows will lead discussions and study sessions with students. Fellows will convene and participate in campus-wide events, collaborating with experts, faculty, and students to uncover new ways to inform cross-sectoral policy solutions.

Shaping the Future of Policy and Politics

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.

Selection Process

Institute Fellows are selected via a Sine Institute selection committee. The online application process is closed.

Sine Institute Student Associates

As an Associate you will assist the Sine Fellows in designing, planning, organizing, and executing their seminar series, as well as their speaking engagements across campus. You will be assigned certain roles to help the Fellow ensure their events are well publicized, attended, documented, and an overall success. Associates are expected to dedicate 8 hours a week during the Spring 2021 semester to help Fellows execute their program.

The application is currently closed.
