Applications are accepted year-round, with selection decisions made at year’s end. Those interested in serving should submit a curriculum vitae, a writing sample (preferably a recent work of sole authorship), and a covering letter specifying the applicant’s research interests, to hspi@gwu.edu.

Successful candidates will be notified in the fall/early winter, as the one-year appointment coincides with the calendar year. Senior Fellows are selected based upon individual expertise not their professional affiliation. Applications are reviewed by committee including at least one HSPI Steering Committee member, at least one HSPI senior staff member, and at least one current or former HSPI Senior Fellow.

Senior Fellows serve in a volunteer capacity and are not HSPI employees. Our Fellows are a distinguished group of homeland security leaders drawn from government, academia, and the non-profit and private sectors. Fellows participate in roundtable sessions with policymakers, collaborate to publish policy papers and undertake homeland security research projects.
