2013 Traub-Dicker-HKS Fellowship Awarded

The Carr Center is pleased to announce that, for the summer of 2013, theTraub-Dicker fellowship has been awarded to Stephen J. Frost. Consistent with the terms of this important award, Mr. Frost will spend the summer doing research in the domain of policies affecting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities.

Stephen Frost is a Visiting Fellow, Women and Public Policy Program. His project is entitled "Achieving Real Inclusion: How Courage, Creativity, and Talent Created the Most Inclusive Olympic Games Ever." Frost is a 2004 graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School and served as Head of Diversity and Inclusion for the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games from 2008 to 2012.

Established through a generous gift by Margaret Traub '80 and her partner Phyllis Dicker, the Traub-Dicker-HKS Fellowship is designed to support the summer research of one or two Kennedy School students doing original work on policies related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities.

The goal of the fellowship is to provide an opportunity for a current Kennedy School student, working closely with a member of the Kennedy School faculty, to produce a serious, and possibly publishable, piece of policy research. Unlike summer internship opportunities, summer fellowships are designed to support scholarship rather than provide work experience.
