Conservative Thought and Policy Program

Each year, the Benson Center launches a national search for a Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy. Alan S. Kahan has been named the 2021-22 Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy and will return for fall semester 2022. 

The Center seeks highly visible individuals who are deeply engaged in either the analytical scholarship or practice of conservative thought and policymaking, or both. Thus, applications will be welcome from the academic, policy, military, and media communities, among others. The term of the appointment is variable, with a minimum of two to a maximum of four semesters. The position begins in August of the academic year. Visiting Scholars continue a tradition of fostering intellectual diversity on the Boulder campus through the Benson Center.
