Fellows are the backbone of The Kant Institute’s mission – to create an open forum for the big thinkers of the next generation.  We offer fellows an unparalleled level of independence to explore a ‘big idea,’ rather than a specific policy region.  Through this philosophy, we hope to cultivate truly innovative policy solutions, unhindered by the current political environment.

After a fellow’s project has reached critical mass, he or she consults with our leading policy advisory board in order to maximize the potential reach and influence of the project’s message.
