The Presidential Fellowship with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress

This year-long, non-residential fellowship program gives students the unique opportunity to craft innovative solutions to today’s most crucial political issues. Since 1970, CSPC’s Fellows have come to Washington, DC, to learn about leadership and governance, to share their outstanding research, and to explore careers in public service. More info available at http://www.thepresidency.org/fellows.

 

Tulane will select one person as its representative for the program for 2018-2019. Juniors and Seniors should apply for this program that involves two all-expense paid trips to Washington, DC to meet fellows from other universities and to discuss policy issues with scholars, senior government officials, and leaders from the fields of business, media, public policy, and the military.

 

Students will be required to (1) identify a faculty adviser at Tulane to work with, (2) commit to attend the two trips, one in October and the other in Spring 2019 (likely April), and (3) write an original research paper on some aspect of the presidency and/or Congress.

 

This application is due Monday, September 24, at 4:00 PM.
