The program seeks applicant proposals for nonresident fellows, who will contribute to TIMEP’s mission through development of research, analysis, and policy advisement in coordination with the TIMEP team. Potential fellows should be mid-career professionals with demonstrated expertise and commitment to TIMEP’s mission and principles.
