Claude Harrison Jr. & Anne Nelson Harrison Fellowships

The Salvatori Center studies topics in constitutional law, American political thought and development, political philosophy, and liberal democracy, as well as public policy as it relates to constitutional and philosophical questions. Harrison Fellowships provide funding for students to work on their own research under the supervision of a CMC faculty member. Harrison Fellows are expected to devote an average of 40 hours per semester over the course of the academic year to their research. The Harrison Fellowship is awarded to four students, and is worth up to $2,500.
