The Lab Student Fellowship aims to support the creativity of students working at the intersection of politics and performance. It will create a space for discussion, workshopping, and collaboration among students who feel an affinity for the Lab’s mission of humanizing global politics. Simultaneously, it will connect students to The Lab’s work in an ongoing and meaningful way.

The Lab is excited to launch our new Student Fellows program! This year-long fellowship program is for those interested in working at the intersection of politics and the arts, but students from all disciplines are welcome to apply. Student Fellows meet regularly (and virtually!) over the course of the academic year, beginning in October.

The centerpiece of the program is a creative project of the fellow’s choosing. This project can take any form – an album, a short story, a soundscape, a one-act play, or series of poems are only a few possibilities. Those who apply are encouraged to propose projects they are already working on, or develop totally new ideas. Fellows workshop their projects in a supportive and engaged group, meet with accomplished professionals working in politics and the arts, and learn more about the work that The Lab does at Georgetown, in Washington, and around the world.
