The Rockefeller Institute of Government Announces the Richard P. Nathan Public Policy Fellowship

Now Accepting Applications; Fellowship Begins January 2018

Albany, NY—The Rockefeller Institute of Government announced, today, a new initiative: the Richard P. Nathan Public Policy Fellowship. Named after longtime former Director and current Senior Visiting Fellow for Health Policy Richard (Dick) Nathan, fellows from areas such as fiscal, health, education, economics, and social policy will work with nationally known Rockefeller Institute staff to connect cutting-edge policy expertise to public problems and the policy community that tries to address them. The fellowship is appropriate for candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds, who are committed to connecting relevant research to policymaking. The fellowship lasts one year. “Dick Nathan is the embodiment of what the Rockefeller Institute of Government’s mission is — linking objective research with practical policymaking. As Director of the Rockefeller Institute for 20 years, professor at Princeton University, researcher at the Brookings Institution, a key official in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget and the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and as adviser to Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller, Dr. Nathan is the perfect model of what the fellows should be,” said Jim Malatras, president of the Rockefeller Institute of Government.
