The Pilon Fellowship is generously supported by Roger Pilon, Ph.D., J.D. (GS, 1971) and is administered by the Institute for Humane Studies (IHS), whose mission is to advance a freer society by discovering and facilitating the development of talented students, scholars, and other intellectuals. The fellowship is awarded in the fall for rest of the current academic year to students intending careers to advance the ideas of the classical liberal/libertarian tradition.
The Roger Pilon Fellowship can be used for tuition, fees, housing costs, and other expenses associated with the pursuit of a degree at Columbia University’s School of General Studies. Recipients and all other applicants may also be eligible for other awards and programs of the Institute for Humane Studies.
