What our fellows have been working on (September 2023)

Horizon is proud of the work produced so far by our first cohort of fellows, who started their placements in the summer of 2022. These 15 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, ranging from AI and democratic values to investigating the origins of disease outbreaks to undersea cable security.

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

We’re proud of the work that all of our fellows 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. If you’d like to see where our fellows are working and learn more about them, please visit our Meet Our Fellows page.

Our first cohort were joined by a second cohort of fellows who started their placements this summer. You can learn more about their placements here. We are currently in the process of reviewing applications for the third cohort, who will start their placements in 2024.
