James R. Soles Fellowship at the CPI

Image Picker for Section 0

In 1989, our alum Charles Lewis (Political Science, with Honors and Distinction, 1975), currently Distinguished Journalist-in-Residence at American University, founded the Center for Public Integrity (CPI) in Washington, DC. The mission of the CPI is to produce original investigative journalism about significant public issues to make institutional power more transparent and more accountable. In 1998, Chuck Lewis established the James R. Soles Fellowship at the CPI in honor of his professor and mentor, Jim Soles.

Each year one graduating senior in the Department of Political Science and International Relations, or a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences with a journalism minor or significant experience in journalism, is selected for the yearlong post-graduate internship at the CPI.  

If you are interested in applying for the Soles Fellowship at the Center for Public Integrity, please complete the   application and provide a one-page statement expressing your interest in the position, and indicate why you would be an outstanding candidate who will uphold the honor of this opportunity.  Also include a current resume and a letter of recommendation from a member of the UD faculty.

You may bring your completed application to room 347 Smith Hall.  The Department’s Honors and Awards Committee will vet applications, but the CPI will make the final decision as to who will be the recipient of the James R. Soles Fellow at the CPI. This year’s fellowship includes a $35,000 stipend.  To be considered, you must submit your application by May 1st at 11:59 pm.
