American Political Science Association: Public Service Fellow

Founded in 1903, the American Political Science Association (APSA) is the leading professional organization for the study of political science and serves more than 11,000 members in more than 100 countries.

Why We Invested

The American Political Science Association (APSA) brings together political scientists from all fields of inquiry, regions, and occupational endeavors within and outside academia to deepen our understanding of politics, democracy, and citizenship throughout the world.

For the period 2019 - 2020, APSA will recruit and host a fellow who will conduct research in service of Congress, increasing the capacity for congress members to contribute meaningfully to the policymaking process.

Democracy Fund is proud to support the APSA Fellowship, which will enhance public understanding of policymaking and improve the quality of scholarship, teaching and reporting on American national politics.‚Äč
