APSA’s Pracademic Fellowship Program & Elections, Public Opinion, and Voting Behavior

Dear Dr. Martinez and Dr. Zechmeister,


I hope that this e-mail finds you well. I am writing to share information about a new fellowship program at APSA that I think may be of interest to members of your organized section. The Pracademic Fellowship Program places faculty in political science, public administration, public policy, and related fields in a federal agency where they work directly with decision-makers. The fellowship is relatively new, currently in its third year and we are eager to add new fellows to our ranks.


Those interested can learn more via the attached call for applications, and/or on our new website. If you are open to sharing this information with your members and any other networks, it would be greatly appreciated. The deadline for applications is October 14th. I am more than happy to talk through any questions that you or any potential applicants might have, and please feel free to pass my contact information along as well.


All the best,
