Applications now accepted for Norman N. Gill Civic Engagement Fellowship

The Public Policy Forum is pleased to announce a new initiative to promote civic engagement and local policy analysis, the Norman N. Gill Civic Engagement Fellowship. The goal of the fellowship is to encourage research leading to increased understanding of the functioning of local governments or leading to the development of programs or policies that assist a local government in addressing a critical issue or problem.

Norman N. Gill served as executive director of the Citizens' Governmental Research Bureau (now the Public Policy Forum) for over 40 years and maintained a life-long commitment to the greater Milwaukee community.

The fellowship will be granted annually on a competitive basis to a current student or recent graduate of any Wisconsin graduate degree program in law, economics, political science, public policy, public administration, urban planning, or a related field. The fellow will engage in a research project focusing on a timely and topical local, regional or state policy or governance issue of importance to Milwaukee and southeast Wisconsin.

The application, due July 21, is now available on the Forum website.
