Now Accepting Applications for TFAS Public Policy Fellowship

//////////////////////

The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) is seeking young Washingtonians working in public policy to join the 12th annual TFAS Public Policy Fellowship cohort.

The Fellowship combines networking with policy leaders and dynamic scholarly debate for a prestigious professional development experience in Washington, D.C. Through this year’s curriculum on “The Experiment in Self-Government,” Fellows will examine the challenges and questions a free society must address in order to flourish – as well as the unique advantages it can enjoy.

The TFAS Public Policy Fellowship has brought me into the circle of the most important intellectuals of today and established friendships – not merely a professional network – with other thoughtful, bright, ambitious young people in Washington.” – Dylan Brandt, 2018-19 Public Policy Fellow

The 2018-19 Fellowship began last fall with a retreat in Gettysburg on the Lincoln-Douglas debates led by Dr. Colleen Sheehan of Villanova University and Dr. Allen Guelzo of Gettysburg College. Monthly discussions also featured exciting speakers and topics including Matt Spalding of the Hillsdale College Kirby Center on “Statesmanship and Political Wisdom;” Josh Mitchell of Georgetown University on “Citizens in the Democratic Age;” and Matt Continetti, Novak ’08, of the Washington Free Beacon on “Willmoore Kendall, the Conservative Movement and Free Speech.”

2018-19 Public Policy Fellow Dylan Brandt of The Heritage Foundation says the Fellowship provided her an opportunity unlike any other program in Washington, D.C.

“The TFAS Public Policy Fellowship has brought me into the circle of the most important intellectuals of today and established friendships – not merely a professional network – with other thoughtful, bright, ambitious young people in Washington,” Brandt said.

TFAS is accepting applications for the 2019-20 TFAS Public Policy Fellowship until the deadline on June 2, 2019. The program runs from September 2019 to May 2020 and includes monthly evening sessions and two weekend retreats in Gettysburg and Washington. The Fellowship is open to young professionals in the D.C. area working in public policy with two to 10 years’ experience.
