2015 Andrew Carnegie Fellows

The Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program provides support for high-caliber scholarship in the social sciences and humanities. The anticipated result of each fellowship is the publication of a book or major study. The work of the 2015 Andrew Carnegie Fellows provides new perspectives on topics such as policing and race, big data and privacy, the impact of an aging population, the safety of generic drugs, and how voter attitudes are formed.
