The purpose of the Visiting Fellows Program is to advance the political, economic, and national security ideas and values of President Ronald Reagan. Visiting Fellows will be selected based on the relevance of their research to these principles. Proposals will also be judged on the likelihood of completion of a book manuscript during the fellowship period.
The fellowship year will begin in Washington, DC in September 2020 and last until August 2021. Reagan Visiting Fellows are required to be resident at the Institute's new headquarters in downtown Washington, DC. Each fellow will be provided with office space. Visiting Fellows will be expected to play an active role in the Institute’s activities and in disseminating ideas related to fellows’ academic work. The Institute will facilitate research, expand the fellows’ contacts, and grow the fellows’ visibility in the Washington policy community. In turn, the research and writing of each fellow will enrich and inform the policy community.
All applicants must submit proof of having successfully defended his/her dissertation by August 15, 2020. Acceptance of the award constitutes a commitment by each fellow to produce a book manuscript at the end of the Fellowship year.
