PRRI Public Fellow Program – Apply Now

By Paul A. Djupe, Denison University

This is a PRRI program for (at least modestly) established scholars with PhDs in the social sciences who study American politics in the four major areas of PRRI’s work, including religious, racial, and ethnic pluralism; religion and white supremacy; immigration policy and migration studies; and LGBTQ rights.

The application deadline is August 15, so don’t delay!

The PRRI Public Fellows program, created in 2017 with the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation, promotes and supports interdisciplinary public scholarship through a cohort of emerging scholar-leaders from across the humanities and social sciences. The program will expand in academic year 2021-2022 as part of PRRI’s Religion and Renewing Democracy Initiative and will include up to 16 diverse scholars each year working across the four major areas of PRRI’s work, including religious, racial, and ethnic pluralism; religion and white supremacy; immigration policy and migration studies; and LGBTQ rights.

Launching in the fall of 2021, the expanded PRRI Public Fellows program will include a $5,000 annual stipend for each fellow and annual microgrants of $12,000 in each area of research to foster collaborative new scholarship and professional relationships among the cohort.  An open call for the 2021-2022 cohort of PRRI Public Fellows can be viewed and downloaded as a PDF:
