About this Fellowship

The Summer Fellowship at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C. combines rigorous study of political thought and public policy in six, week-long courses led by master teachers, policy workshops directed by field experts and experienced government officials, and a distinguished speaker series of exemplary figures from public life.

The Summer Institute typically has two deadline options - an early deadline in mid-December with decisions at the end of January - students meeting this deadline are expected to participate in the program; and a regular decision in early March, with decisions at the end of March. Please check the competition website for specific and up to date deadlines.

Hudson Institute Political Studies offers an education in political theory and practice that broadens and deepens understanding of public policy and American political principles. Rather than a set of answers, Hudson Institute Political Studies offers a framework for political thought and strategic analysis that equips students to seriously confront the challenges facing this nation and the world. By studying the most consequential ideas of the greatest political minds, students seek to determine--and meet--the demands of a free society and a just republic.

Award Value

$3,000 and complimentary housing in Washington, D.C.
