Associate Fellows

Associate Fellows are scholars who share their expertise with IPS through one of the Institute’s projects or program areas. Inclusion into the IPS community as an Associate Fellow requires invitation or sponsorship by an IPS project director, and on-going sponsorship to remain in good standing.  Most Associate Fellows work on volunteer basis, unless dedicated funds are raised to support their work.
