SNF Agora Programs

Faculty Grants Program

The purpose of the SNF Agora Faculty Grants program is to encourage and support work by faculty at Johns Hopkins, particularly faculty from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (KSAS), that is complementary to SNF Agora’s mission. This could take the form of scholarship, convenings, public engagement, policy briefings, and more. SNF Agora wants to support and amplify this work through its institute, and foster faculty collaboration across the university on ideas and efforts that could reinvigorate global democracy and the civic spaces that fuel it.

Visiting Fellows Program

The SNF Agora Visiting Fellows program supports the institute’s mission of strengthening global democracy by enabling us to expand our reach and incorporate a broader range of people into our work. This program identifies and recruits a select cohort of fellows from diverse sectors, disciplines, backgrounds, and ideologies to join the institute to work with our permanent faculty, researchers, and students for a defined period—typically one semester or less—during the academic year. Visiting fellows contribute to an academic community that is open and permeable—based at Johns Hopkins but reaching well beyond its walls.

Postdoctoral Fellows Program

The postdoctoral program is a one-year program intended to support recent doctoral degree recipients whose scholarship engages with questions and topics directly related to the institute’s mission. The SNF Agora Academy seeks two fellows who would engage actively with and benefit from a multidisciplinary scholarly community that enables them to extend their research and public engagement in new directions, with the active mentorship of SNF Agora Institute faculty.
