Tolbert Named 2021 Carnegie Fellow

Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program Wordmark

Caroline Tolbert, distinguished research fellow in the Politics and Policy Research Program, was selected as one of the winners of the prestigious Andrew Carnegie Fellowship. The fellowship awards up to $200,000 to fund the data analysis, writing, and publishing of high-caliber scholarly research. 

The award will allow her to continue her work on voting accessibility, which was the subject of her recent book, Accessible Elections: How the States Can Help Americans Vote, published in October 2020. Having been published before the 2020 election, Tolbert and co-author Michael Ritter, assistant professor of Political Science at Washington State University, were missing data from one of the most unique elections in history.
