Announcing the First Short-Term Fellow Cohorts at the IAS

From May-June, the two new cohorts of our pilot short-term fellows program will gather virtually to share research and make productive connections. Open to all University of Minnesota system faculty, graduate students, staff, and to community members across the state of Minnesota, we are pleased to say we received an overwhelming number of applications. 

Please help us welcome these new fellows, and stay tuned for longer introductions to each individual and their work in the coming weeks!
