About Our Fellows

Hoover has an exceptional cohort of scholars. Some of our fellows are esteemed generalists, capable of addressing broad policy applications, while others are world-renowned experts in specific areas of public policy and historians with a keen eye for anticipating trends underlying rapidly changing global events. A data-driven research approach to scholarship is the common denominator among this highly distinguished community of fellows, who actively conduct public policy research centered on the principles of free markets, limited government, and individual freedom.
