Faculty Fellows

Our Faculty Fellows program deepens collaboration between faculty members across Penn’s 12 schools and Perry World House (PWH) by providing robust support for global-policy relevant faculty research and engagement.

Throughout their three-year fellowship, Faculty Fellows participate in workshops and colloquia; attend the Wednesday Seminar Series; host Visiting Fellows and Visiting Scholars; and provide input to the development of our thematic work. They may also make substantial policy research contributions to one of Perry World House's core or emerging policy research areas: Democracy, Climate Change, Security, and Human Rights and Global Justice.

In order to advance Faculty Fellows’ policy research and outputs, PWH will provide a package of financial resources and staff support. This package of support will be customized to the faculty member, but may involve up to $20,000 to fund to support a faculty-organized workshop or set of workshops that will advance policy research, support with writing for policy outlets, and avenues for engagement with policy global policy makers. Faculty Fellows will also be able to take advantage of Perry World House’s wide network of experts and Visiting Fellows.

Applications are now open for 2024-2027 cohort of Faculty Fellows. Apply by May 5, 2024.
