Project Description

Democracy Fellow

Aman Panjwani serves as Government Accountability Project’s Democracy Fellow. In this role, he helps lead the Democracy Protection Initiative, an effort designed to support and protect employees who choose to blow the whistle on illegality and abuses of power aimed at undermining the election or sabotaging the peaceful transition of power should the electorate vote for change.

A recent first-generation graduate of Harvard University, Aman joins Government Accountability Project after spending a summer with the organization as a Harvard CPIC Mindich Fellow. His previous experiences include advocating for a constitutionally guaranteed right to education, researching the landscape of economic opportunity across the nation, and leading a movement to inspire undergraduate students to pursue public service.

Aman is also a Fulbright Scholar, receiving the competitive grant to study student decision-making within India’s higher education system. While the COVID-19 pandemic has made it infeasible to travel to India, he intends to continue the project as a Seed for Change Grant recipient from the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute at Harvard University.
