Lilliana Mason Awarded Andrew Carnegie Fellowship

Lilliana Mason, associate professor of political science at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University, has been named to the 2024 class of Andrew Carnegie Fellows. The 28 scholars selected this year will each receive grants of up to $200,000 to research political polarization.

The Carnegie Fellows Program was founded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York in 2015 to support research in the humanities and social sciences, distributing over $50 million to date. Recipients are expected to produce either a book or a significant study in their field.

“We are thrilled that Lilliana’s important work on political polarization is being recognized in this way, giving her the opportunity to delve deeper into its causes and implications,” said Hahrie Han, director of the SNF Agora Institute and a professor of political science. “The SNF Agora Institute is committed to generating scholarly insights that can help strengthen democracy; better insight into the role polarization plays in our democracy will enable us to identify interventions that counteract its anti-democratic effects.”
