The Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress, a non-partisan organization dedicated to the study of the presidency and its related institutions, offers a non-resident internship designed to promote interest in public policy and encourage leadership.
The Center's Presidential Fellows Program consists of two components: a Fall Leadership Conference and the Spring Symposium. Fellows meet government officials, public policy leaders, and representatives from prestigious think tanks. Center Fellows are assigned a mentor; each fellow must participate in a panel discussion and deliver an original research paper during the Spring Symposium. For more information, see http://www.thepresidency.org/programs/presidential-fellows-program.
Northwestern holds an internal competition for this fellowship, which allows students to participate in the two student conferences in Washington, DC.
Eligibility: Sophomores and juniors (in any major) who have a demonstrated interest in public policy and a GPA of 3.2 or higher.
Submit a completed application by e-mail (email@example.com) to the Office of Fellowships by 12PM on March 14 (Thursday).
