New America Fellows Program

Amount Note:

Precise terms and stipend levels of fellowships vary widely, as some fellows work full-time at New America in pursuit of their research, while many others have other professional commitments during the term of their fellowship. Stipends generally fall into the following levels: $15,000, $30,000, $60,000, $90,000. 

Eligibility Note:

Residency is not required, but fellows are expected to travel periodically to Fellows Program events in Washington, DC or New York City. See solicitation for more details. 

New America’s Fellows Program invests in thinkers—academics, journalists, independent scholars, and public policy analysts—who offer inventive perspectives on the major challenges facing our society. Fellows advance ideas through research, reporting, analysis, and storytelling. We look for projects that are original and ambitious, with viable plans for their implementation. There is no set template for a successful fellowship project. Some projects focus on furthering a new public policy idea through either a domestic or international lens, while others illuminate longstanding dilemmas of American life from new angles. 

Fellows benefit from a financial stipend, engagement with each other and with New America’s various policy programs, and the expanded audience and exposure from New America and its media partners. Precise terms and stipend levels of fellowships vary widely, as some fellows work full-time at New America in pursuit of their research while many others have other professional commitments during the term of their fellowship.
