Research Fellowships are available for MSU faculty members to conduct research projects related to regulation and policy.  Fellows produce publicly accessible white papers, policy issues papers, and other communications that provide objective, research-based information to lawmakers, policy advisers, and the general public on critical policy and regulatory issues, and participate in workshops and conferences organized by the research fellows. Appointments are for a two-year period, with the potential for renewal. Four research fellows were selected in November 2016 through a competitive process through which applications were solicited university-wide by MSU’s Vice President of Research and Economic Development office and evaluated by the IRAEA’s advisory board using the National Institute of Health’s criteria for excellence in research.
