Hertog Award--Fantastic Experience

The Hertog Foundation is pleased to announce its 2018 fellowships and seminars for undergraduates and recent grads.

 

   As you can see on our website, the Foundation offers various fellowships on public policy and political thought in Washington, DC. Each carries funding for travel as well as housing accommodations. Fellows study with master teachers and hear from distinguished speakers drawn from academia, politics, journalism, and business. Current lecturers include Yuval Levin (National Affairs), General John Allen(Brookings), Robert Bartlett (Boston College), Vickie Sullivan (Tufts), Frederick Kagan (AEI), and many more.

 

      We have four offerings next year:

  •              Weekend Seminars – Intensive three-day seminars on public policy topics offered in Winter/Spring 2018.

 

  •              Political Studies Program – Our flagship seven-week fellowship will run from June 17 to August 4, 2018. The best candidates for this program are college upperclassmen and recent grads, although we have accepted exceptional freshmen and sophomores in the past.

 

  •              War Studies Program – A two-week summer fellowship offered by Kim and Fred Kagan at the Institute for the Study of War. This program is also best-suited to juniors, seniors, and recent grads.

 

  •              Summer Courses – This series of one- to two-week seminars allows students to create their own individualized course of study. Younger students are encouraged to apply for these seminars, as are upperclassmen who have other obligations during the summer.

 

   Would you be willing to share this announcement with your students? We also invite you to nominate students for our fellowships and seminars. Nominating students is easy. Simply share the candidate’s name and email with me, along with a brief description of the student’s abilities and interest in politics and public policy. I’ll then reach out to your nominee(s) to encourage them to apply.

 

   Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about our offerings – I would be glad to tell you more about our programs!

Best,
