Director’s Message: February 2017

Publication date 
February 28, 2017

Among the many ISPS accomplishments that inspire me, the achievements of our undergraduate Director’s Fellows and graduate Policy Fellows stand out. We have a remarkable new class of Director’s Fellows just beginning with us — the first to be able to benefit from our new Policy Lab. Meanwhile, some of our recent fellows are receiving well-deserved recognition, including Zach Young (the Michel David-Weill Scholarship to pursue graduate studies at Sciences Po in Paris); Joshua Feinzig (the 2017-2018 Luce Scholarship to spend a year in Asia), and Simone Seiver (the Gates Fellowship to pursue graduate work at Cambridge). The undergraduate Director’s Fellows complement our Graduate Policy Fellows, young scholars in the social sciences, history, law, and related fields who spend a year refining their top-level research and translating it into policy recommendations. We start accepting applications for next academic year in early March.
