ISPS Fellowships


ISPS supports four fellowship programs for Yale students. The fellowships are designed to prepare graduate and undergraduate students from across the disciplines to contribute to domestic policy discussions in the United States.

ISPS Graduate Policy Fellows

The Yale ISPS Policy Fellows Program supports Yale graduate and professional students conducting research on U.S. domestic policy.

ISPS Policy Fellows attend weekly breakfast workshops, receive training in skills such as op-ed and policy memo writing, media appearances, and blogging; attend high level conferences; present their research to and receive feedback from ISPS-affiliated faculty and other graduate fellows; contribute to the ISPS blog; and are eligible to receive research support for policy-relevant projects they develop in conjunction with ISPS.
