Current Class of National Fellows

New America’s Fellows Program invests in thinkers—journalists, scholars, filmmakers, and public policy analysts—who generate big, bold ideas that have an impact and spark new conversations about the most pressing issues of our day.

Since 1999, the Fellows Program has supported 265 National Fellows as they pursued ambitious projects resulting in the publication of nearly 150 books, 13 feature-length films, and several award-winning longform reporting projects. Check out our impact page to learn more about the work we have supported over the years.

Every year, the program receives hundreds of competitive applicants and we chose 15 talented individuals for our Class of 2024 National Fellows. Throughout their fellowship year, fellows will pursue book, film, and multimedia projects in a wide range of policy areas, including the rise of global cryptocurrency, the colonial origins of global mental health, the civil rights movement, wealth inequality through the experience of service workers, endangered languages, and more.
