More Info

The Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress is a non-partisan organization that 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; are assigned a mentor; and must participate in a panel discussion and deliver an original research paper during the Spring Symposium.
