The 2022 Horizon Fellowship cohort: Where are they now?
Horizon is proud to share an update on our 2022 fellowship cohort. The cohort started their placements in summer 2022, and, after conducting high-quality and impactful work at their host organizations, have now completed their initial terms. Below is a full list of fellows and what they are doing now.
Horizon fellows serve 12-month terms at federal agencies, congressional offices, or think tanks. They can be renewed for a second 12-month term, either within their initial host organization or at a different institution. In the 2022 cohort, all fellows who requested a second term received one, and most are continuing their work at their initial host organization. Two fellows decided to explore a new host organization during their second term, and two were hired into full-time jobs.
Horizon junior fellows serve for 6-month terms at think tanks, with the possibility of renewing for a second 6-month term. All four of the 2022 junior fellows renewed for a second term, which they have now completed. All also received full-time job offers after the fellowship and will continue to work in policy and public service: two have transitioned to government work (at the Department of Homeland Security and the Government Accountability Office), and two have been hired by their host think tanks as full-time staff.
Horizon’s goal is to help fellows break into a new career and to set them up for transitions to permanent positions in policy and public service, so we’re thrilled with the track record of our first fellowship cohort.
