2.    Access to annual microgrants of $12,000 in each area of PRRI's work for collaborative scholarly projects within the cohort.
3.    Advance access to PRRI data, as well as various training opportunities to support public scholarship.

2.    Fellows must have earned their terminal degree at least three years ago and no more than 12 years ago.
