This program is built around a new project, led by top scholars from Stanford University and Princeton University, that will uncover how the American Dream is faring and how inclusive and opportunity-enhancing policy might be designed.
We’re now recruiting a select group of research fellows to become part of this study. The fellows will receive intensive training and then visit communities across America to talk with families about their lives, hopes, and dreams. It’s not a survey, it’s not a poll, but an honest and open conversation that we’re holding in all 50 states.
The fellows will then learn how to analyze the interviews with the latest data science methods, identify the country’s emerging problems, and begin the task of building 21st-century policy that responds to the voices of the people. It will be a life-changing experience that prepares the next generation of leaders in academia, government, politics, nonprofits, and beyond.
The fellowship begins in June 2019 and concludes in August 2020. We offer two application deadlines: January 7, 2019, and February 7, 2019. For more details, check out our website or this overview of the fellowship program. Students can submit applications directly through our website.
