The Pulte Institute for Global Development seeks policy and practice experts on today's most compelling global issues to apply to join our Policy and Practice Visiting Associates Program.

Visiting Associates will spend between two to eight weeks on the University of Notre Dame’s historic campus, where they will write evidence-based, strategic publications that can positively influence global development policy and practice. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Pulte Institute is accepting applications for remote engagements for the foreseeable future.

While in residency, Visiting Associates will engage with key thought leaders; policymakers and government agencies; the private sector; and the academy to develop two deliverables:

  • a primary policy paper, and 
  • a shorter policy brief, co-authored with a member of the Pulte Institute.

Please read the full program details for more information on the deliverables, length of stay, and other considerations.

Applicants can apply as an individual or through a partnership between their organization and the Pulte Institute. The Pulte Institute administers the Visiting Associates Program in close partnership with Notre Dame's Keough School of Global Affairs, and also works with various other colleges, schools, institutes, centers, and initiatives across Notre Dame to fund these positions. View and download publications from Policy and Practice Visiting Associates.
