ISPS Policy Fellows

The Yale ISPS Policy Fellows Program supports graduate and professional students conducting research on U.S. domestic policy. Fellows complete year-long research projects with implications for pressing policy concerns and develop the skills and tools to translate their research findings into policy recommendations.

Fellows attend biweekly breakfast workshops, some featuring prominent Yale faculty and guests working on policy-relevant issues and others providing training in skills such as op-ed and policy memo writing, media appearances, and blogging. Later in the year, these meetings become opportunities for fellows to present their research and receive feedback from ISPS-affiliated faculty and other graduate fellows. In addition, fellows contribute regularly to the ISPS blog, have the opportunity to work on policy-relevant projects they develop in conjunction with ISPS affiliates, and are afforded a chance to present their work at ISPS-sponsored events.
