2016 Andrew Carnegie Fellows

The Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program provides support for high-caliber scholarship in the social sciences and humanities.

The 2016 Andrew Carnegie Fellows will provide new perspectives on topics such as firearms and justifiable homicide, economic and demographic shifts in rural America, the abolition of prisons, the process for selecting judges, the impact of economic growth on climate change, the resettlement of refugees and asylum seekers, the adaptation of Islam in Western societies, the future of the Middle East, and famine in the twentieth century.
