The Hoover Institution Veteran Fellowship Program (VFP) is a nonresidential, year-long program for 10 military veterans that was launched in the fall of 2021. The program seeks participants who desire to address critical challenges in the public sector with actionable solutions. Focus areas should align with Hoover’s research priorities and seek to inform the formation and implementation of policy. The program is building an effective and enduring network of successful veteran practitioners who confront real-world challenges alongside Hoover fellows with support networks at the Hoover Institution and Stanford University.

The Hoover Institution Veteran Fellowship Program is a unique endeavor that integrates the public policy scholarship of the Hoover Institution with military veterans who exemplify the credibility and talent of the military. The Program seeks to bring greater innovation and action to policy awareness and implementation. By addressing critical policy challenges, the Program will produce a group of practitioners who will make meaningful advances across the United States. The veterans’ unique grasp of the country’s values, their personal initiative, and their wide networks present synergies where sound policy ideas can emerge.
