The Roper Center is proud to announce that José Tomás Sánchez Gómez and Claire Liu have been chosen as the inaugural Andrew Kohut Fellows for the summer of 2017.

Both applicants submitted impressive proposals outlining the independent research projects they plan to pursue over the summer using data from the Roper Center archives: José Tomás’ project will focus on economic sentiments and major political changes in Chile between 1966 and 2016, while Claire’s project will explore the “fake news” phenomenon in the 2016 presidential election. The Roper Center would like to thank all of the applicants to the 2017 Kohut Fellowship for their thoughtful proposals.

The Kohut Fellowship honors the memory of Andrew Kohut and his numerous contributions to the science and art of survey research. In addition to engaging in their own original public opinion-focused research projects, Kohut Fellows will learn about the methods and techniques of survey research and other forms of public opinion research, analysis, and dissemination and will be invited to assist in supervised projects at the Roper Center.
