Independent Women’s Forum is proud to promote the work of our senior fellows, visiting fellows, and junior fellows.

We respect the independent thinking of our fellows, who may not always represent the official position of IWF.

We highlight their voices because of their valuable knowledge, expertise, and perspectives.

Every six months, IWF welcomes a new cohort of visiting fellows. Visiting fellowships are offered to highly qualified and accomplished policy experts or communicators throughout the country.

The application period for the 2022 winter fellowship program has passed. If you are interested in applying for the 2022 summer program, please fill out this form by June 1, 2022.

IWF also offers a junior fellowship program for college students and recent graduates. If you would like to be considered for a junior fellowship, please fill out this online application.
