The University of Illinois System is accepting applications for the 2019–20 Public Voices Fellowship. This year-long fellowship open to tenure system faculty provides a cohort of 20 thought leaders with extraordinary support, leadership skills, and knowledge to ensure their ideas shape not only their fields, but also the greater public conversations of our age. Learn more about the fellowship and how to apply at this information session.

The Public Voices Fellowship at the University of Illinois is part of a prestigious national initiative to change who writes history. The internationally acclaimed curriculum and method explore leadership, power, and action in an unfair world. Using time tested methods of transformational learning, fellows explore how credibility works, how ideas spread, when and why minds change, and how ideas play out over time and space. This program will engage selected fellows in intense, results-oriented thinking and activities around their own knowledge and impact. It will provide the inside information, high-level support and media connections to become influential on a large scale. Other participating institutions include Yale, Dartmouth, Northwestern, The Ford Foundation, and more. Fellows completing the one-year fellowship will join a national network of peers, allowing for knowledge-sharing and innovation across institutions.

The Public Voices Fellowship is an initiative launched by The OpEd Project in partnership with leading universities and foundations nationwide. Additional information may be found at the following sites:
