The W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellows Program was established in 1971 to allow outstanding scholars to devote time to unrestricted, creative research and writing at the Hoover Institution. During their fellowship they are free from their normal academic responsibilities. Accordingly, the fellowships afford scholars a unique opportunity to advance their professional careers by completing an original and significant research project.
Candidates are typically nominated by a Hoover Institution senior fellow, must hold a PhD or an equivalent degree, have an established publication record, and be currently employed in a full-time, junior or senior academic appointment at a college or university to which they will return after the fellowship year. Preference is given to candidates who are three to seven years beyond their PhD. We particularly welcome research proposals that address significant domestic and international public policy issues in fields such as contemporary history, computer science, economics, education, law, international relations, political philosophy, political science, psychology, public policy, science and technology policy, and sociology. Fellowships usually begin in September and end the following June; other lengths of time will be considered.
National fellows are expected to produce a publishable journal article or book manuscript while in residence. Fellows are also expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Hoover Institution, including seminars and social events. In addition,
How to Apply
The application deadline is February 15. Candidates should submit a research proposal (1,500 words maximum), a CV, a completed application form, and a cover letter indicating how they would fulfill the fellowship’s publication expectation. Proposals should be free of jargon and directed to a wide academic audience. Fellowships will have been awarded by March 15.
