Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellowship
The Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellowship brings high-profile figures at the forefront of media, politics, and public policy to Harvard’s Kennedy School to work with students, faculty, scholars and the public on important issues of the moment. The Fellows spend varying periods of time at Harvard and focus on important policy areas.
This fellowship was established in December of 2013 through a generous gift from Doug and Lydia Shorenstein in honor of Doug’s late father, Walter Shorenstein. Walter Shorenstein, the Center’s original benefactor, was a visionary leader in business and politics, a patriotic citizen and a creative and disruptive force for good.
