The David F. Linowes Fellows Program

The David F. Linowes Faculty Fellows Program is made possible by a generous gift from the Linowes family. The Linowes Fellowship provides exceptionally promising tenure-stream faculty with opportunities for innovation and discovery using the Cline Center’s data holdings and/or analytic tools. Any tenure-stream faculty member at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is eligible to be considered for the Linowes Faculty Fellows program. Preference is given to those who do not already hold an endowed appointment. Faculty named as Linowes Fellows are expected to play a leadership role in conceiving and organizing the annual David F. Linowes Lecture on Public Policy, which is an important component of the Linowes endowment. Linowes Fellow applications are normally due in early July, with announcements made by early August. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their proposals with the Center’s director, Scott Althaus (, prior to developing them.
