The Institute of Politics Fellows Program presents a unique opportunity for leading political practitioners (e.g. former elected officials, campaign strategists, political journalists, pollsters) to be in residence at the University of Chicago during an academic quarter. These accomplished practitioners will draw on their first-hand experiences, research and professional networks to give insightful and unique perspective on politics and policy in action. The Fellows Program is made possible with generous support from The Pritzker Foundation.
Fellows independently lead non-credit seminars on timely and relevant issues of national import. These weekly, 90-minute discussions, on a topic of each Fellow's choosing, take place at the IOP House and is open to all University students, faculty, staff and community members. Seminars are built to best leverage the expertise of the Fellow and vary from lectures and informal discussion groups to panel discussions and guest lectures.
While in residence, Fellows also keep weekly office hours and utilize the resources of the University to pursue projects of their choosing. Fellows receive a living stipend and IOP-provided housing during their stay.
In keeping with the University’s commitment to diversity and the free and open pursuit of knowledge, Fellows represent a broad array of political views and offer diverse policy perspectives.
