What our fellows have been working on (April 2024)

Horizon is proud of the work produced so far by our first and second cohorts of fellows, who started their placements in the summers of 2022 and 2023, respectively. These talented professionals have worked with their host organizations — federal agencies, congressional offices, and think tanks — to conduct important research and contribute to policy on a variety of emerging technology topics, from the intersection of metagenomic sequencing and climate change to how Congress can champion quantum computing.

We’re very excited to share a sample of what our fellows and alumni have worked on and achieved during their fellowship placements since our previous update in September, including:

Additionally, Horizon alumni have worked on a number of exciting projects in public service roles after their fellowship: 

We’re proud of the work that all of our fellows and alumni have undertaken so far. We are also grateful to the host organizations who have provided our fellows with opportunities and support as they build their public service careers.

You can stay up-to-date about our fellows’ accomplishments by signing up for our newsletter, where we will periodically share further updates and fellow Q&As. If you’d like to see where our fellows are working and learn more about them, please visit our Meet Our Fellows page.

Our 2023 fellowship cohort will soon be joined by our incoming 2024 fellows, who have recently wrapped up their training and are currently seeking placements to start this summer.
