Are you a scientist who wants to explore the intersection of voting rights and public policy? Do you think research can help remove barriers to enfranchisement? The Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists is inviting applications from qualified social scientists and related experts for a Voting Rights Fellowship to begin September 2017. The fellowship is part of the UCS Kendall fellows program. Successful applicants will develop a proposal for a two-year project to identify gaps in research related to voting rights, assess the impact of voter disenfranchisement on our ability to meet science-based policy challenges, and feed that analysis into efforts to increase voter participation in U.S. elections.
