Public Voices Fellowship

The OpEd Project's goal is "to increase the range of voices and quality of ideas we hear in the world." SJSU's 2020 Public Voices Fellowship marks our first entry into this national initiative aimed at dramatically increasing the public impact of women and underrepresented thought leaders. In particular, the fellowship is geared towards those who have not yet learned how to translate their scholarship to public action, ensuring that their ideas help to shape the important conversations of our age.
