We’re excited to announce that TFAS is now accepting applications for the Public Policy Fellows program – a yearlong networking and education program designed to develop young leaders with a shared commitment to improving public policy. The goal of the fellowship program is to provide events that allow young alumni to:

  • Develop strong connections to other alumni working in public policy
  • Network with key public policy leaders
  • Participate in academic discussion sessions led by TFAS faculty
  • Enhance their professional development through skill-based sessions
  • All fellows must commit to attending monthly speaker events and one weekend retreat scheduled between September 2015 – May 2016.

We’re looking for 15 – 20 young professionals working in public policy in the D.C. area to participate in the 2015-2016 program. All applicants must:

  • Be an alumnus of one of The Fund for American Studies institutes
  • Work in the field of public policy
  • Be committed to the ideas of free markets and limited government
  • Live and work in the Washington, D.C. area
  • It’s recommended that applicants have at least 1-2 years of work experience, but anyone with a strong resume will be considered.

Interested alumni should submit a copy of their current resume to Public Policy Fellows Director Brigit Moore at bmoore@TFAS.org and complete a brief online questionnaire by Monday, July 27, 2015.
