The Hoover Institution Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellows Program allows outstanding scholars from colleges, universities, and institutions around the world to be freed from academic and professional responsibilities to devote one year to unrestricted, creative research and publication. National Fellows Program fellowships provide scholars the opportunity to complete original significant research with the expectation of generating publishable work while in residence at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, Stanford, California. 

Two unique resources frame the Hoover Institution National Fellows program: 
• The Hoover Library and Archives affords Fellows access to the richest private archive collections in the United States. With nearly one million volumes and more than six thousand archival collections from 171 countries, the Hoover Library and Archives is a national and international center for primary-source documentation and research on problems of political, economic, and social change. 
• National Fellows are able to draw on the experience of outstanding resident scholars at the Hoover Institution and Stanford University. Resident fellows and university faculty are available to discuss research topics, as well as provide insight into policy issues and strategic challenges. 

Multiple National Fellows Program fellowships are awarded annually. Participation in the program begins September 1 and ends August 31 of the following year. National Fellows are encouraged to engage in the intellectual life of the Hoover Institution and will make at least one presentation on their research before an appropriate group of scholars during the year in residence. 

The selection committee is made up of Hoover Senior Fellows and distinguished scholars from Stanford University. The committee selects program participants and makes recommendations to the Director of the Hoover Institution regarding each year’s participants. 

 APPLICATION Application to the program requires the online submission of: 
• Cover letter 
• Curriculum vitae 
• Three (3) to five (5) page research proposal 
• Three (3) to five (5) confidential letters of recommendation from leading scholars 

Qualified candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree or its equivalent, have an established publication record, and hold promise as a productive scholar. Candidates are generally five (5) to ten (10) years beyond the Ph.D. degree. They are expected to resume pre-existing full-time appointments at highly regarded institutions or universities upon completion of the National Fellows program. Hoover National Fellows receive financial support solely on the merits of their proposed research and scholarly record, irrespective of pre-existing support. Applicants from across the social sciences and history are encouraged to apply. 

 The Hoover Institution is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. The Hoover Institution welcomes applications from all who would bring additional dimensions to its mission.
