New America Fellows Program
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.

Josephine de Karman Fellowship Trust - Fellowships
The Josephine de Karman Fellowship Trust was established in 1954 by the late Dr. Theodore von Karman, world renowned aeronautics expert and teacher and first director of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, in memory of his sister, Josephine, who died in 1951. The purpose of this fellowship program is to recognize and assist students whose scholastic achievements reflect Professor von Karman’s high standards. DeKarman fellowships are open to students in any discipline, including international students, who are currently enrolled in a university or college located within the United States.

GriffinHarte Foundation - Grants
The GriffinHarte Foundation promotes civil conversations about issues that divide us and are often contentious and difficult to sort through. These issues usually involve questions of fairness, equity, respect, identity, and the complex ways we are connected to other people. Because the foundation believes that communication is one of the key elements to understanding and working with social differences, it supports and promotes conversations, research, and scholarship that are grounded in questions and practices of civility and feminism; informed by a desire to define, explore, and advocate for social, political, and economic justice in our professional and personal lives; and are centered in an explicit recognition of the ways lives and communication are influenced by identities — gender and sex, race and ethnicity, age and physical abilities, and education and economic standing.
