Westin Fellowship

The fellowship presents a unique opportunity to spend a year researching privacy while creating ties to the community in industry and government around the world. Westin Fellows will have the opportunity to work either remotely during their year-long fellowship or to be residential in Portsmouth, NH.

The IAPP Westin Fellowship Program was created in 2013 to encourage and enable research and scholarship in the field of privacy.

Applicants from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Previous research, coursework or experience in privacy law, information technology, sociology, marketing or business may be useful. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents or be authorized to work in the U.S.

The one-year fellowship generally begins and ends in August.
