Being a Wayne Morse Fellow is one the few experiences in my lifetime that truly captures the interconnectedness of our world. I have become acutely aware that societal problems don’t exist in isolated silos; the solutions to ecological and economic crises can be the same.

Wayne Morse Fellowships are an opportunity to follow in the tradition of Senator Morse, who was also dean of the University of Oregon School of Law. The Wayne Morse Center awards 7-9 fellowships each year.
Applications for incoming students are accepted on a rolling basis each year, with most decisions being made by the end of May.
Applications for current students are due in the spring of each year.
