Louisa Lincoln is currently a PhD candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication. Lincoln studied journalism and political science as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and previously worked in business development for nonprofit media organizations. This professional experience has informed her research as a graduate student at Annenberg, where she studies sustainable funding models for nonprofit news and public media organizations in the United States. She is particularly interested in the relationship between nonprofit news organizations and their philanthropic funders, which is the focus of both her dissertation research and her work at CHIP. After being introduced to the Center through her involvement in the Lipman Family Prize Fellowship, Lincoln started working with CHIP to apply her doctoral research training and subject matter expertise to the field of high-impact philanthropy. As an Applied Research Analyst, Lincoln’s work involves contributing to CHIP’s research and guidance in the democracy & society arena.
