The University of Texas at Austin - Civitas Institute

Civitas Institute Affiliate Fellows Program


In addition to its two primary fellowship programs, the Civitas Institute has established an Affiliate Fellows Program. We invite all interested UT students to apply. 

The Affiliate Fellows Program is designed to provide UT students who are interested in the mission of the Civitas Institute, but who are not currently members of our primary fellowship programs, with an opportunity to get to know our student fellows and staff and to attend several of our private events. Our private events include receptions, lunches, and coffee meetings with invited speakers, where students have the opportunity to ask more involved and conversational questions than public talks or formal seminars can typically accommodate. These events are otherwise only available to our student fellows.  

The program also functions as a preparation for students who are considering applying to one of our primary fellowship programs, as it gives them a closer look at the kinds of programs we offer and of the intellectual spirit that pervades Civitas. 


To apply, you must be a registered, full-time undergraduate student at the University of Texas at Austin, with a minimum GPA of 3.5.  

To begin the application process, please email Antonio Sosa at In the email, briefly describe your interest in the Civitas Institute and why you would like to join the Affiliate Fellows Program. A brief, in-person interview on campus will follow.
