Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will be spending some time in Harvard Square this fall.

Bush, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination, will be a visiting fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School this semester, the school announced Tuesday.

As part of his duties, Bush is set to deliver the 2016 Godkin Lecture on Thursday, the school said.

Bush is the younger brother of former US President George W. Bush and the son of President George H. W. Bush. He was Florida governor from 1999 to 2007.

Early on, he was considered the frontrunner in the presidential primary race. But, after Donald Trump’s surprising ascent, Bush suspended his presidential campaign in February after finishing fourth in the South Carolina primary.

Bush will be part of the Program on Education Policy and Governance at the Kennedy School’s Taubman Center for State and Local Government.
