About the CLPS Fall 2023 Research Fellowship

The Fall 2023 Research Fellowship will place undergraduate students with Rockefeller Institute scholars to assist with policy research projects related to workforce diversity. Institute scholars will act as mentors for the fellows, and direct their work on the research projects. Fellows that successfully contribute to the research projects will be listed as co-authors. Fellows are expected to meet once a week as a cohort to discuss their work, learn about policy research, and engage in professional skills development. The fellowship is paid, awards one course credit, and requires a commitment of 10 hours a week, with weekly one-hour in-person meetings at the Rockefeller Institute in downtown Albany.
