In addition to providing students the opportunity to engage in original research, part of the mission of the Center is to provide students with the opportunity to meet female elected officials.

CWPO Student Fellows

Launched in the fall of 2021, the Center for Women and Politics of Ohio is excited to offer the opportunity for BW students to become research fellows. During the semester of their fellowship, students will assist with the ongoing research of the Center on elections and the success of female candidates, developing skills that include the creation and management of large data sets, attention to detail, problem solving and analytical thinking, and writing for digital media. Students will also contribute content for manuscripts and professional academic conference papers. In addition, fellows will have the opportunity to create their own original project, furthering the mission of the Center to promote undergraduate research. Interested students can contact Professor Barbara Palmer at
