Conservative Thought and Policy Program

The application period for the 2021-22 Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy has closed. The initiative, which is supported entirely by private funds, seeks senior-level, highly visible scholars who are deeply engaged in either the analytical scholarship or practice of conservative thinking and policymaking or both. Applicants may come from academic, military, media or policy communities. 

Visting scholars are expected to teach a load commensurate with their field, and offer public lectures, public seminars and informal discussions with students and the public. While on campus, the visiting scholar brings in prominent members of the conservative intellectual community from around the country for a day at CU Boulder; the guests of the program give lectures that are free and open to the public.
