Fellows Program

PAT-Net recognizes graduate students who show interest and promise in scholarship that is devoted to critically understanding government, governance, and administration. Fellows engage in a pre-conference workshop. They receive a complimentary conference registration and a one-year PA Theory Network membership. The mentorship, connections, highlighting, and ideas that are generated from the Fellowship are unique in the field, and cherished by many scholars.

Congratulations to the 2024 PAT-Net Fellows!
