Interesting opportunity from the Hertog Foundation:

“Good afternoon! I am writing to let you know that the Hertog Foundation has just opened applications for some exceptional, fully funded learning opportunities in Washington, DC.

Once again, the Hertog Foundation is offering a range of programs for 2018. We have four offerings next year:
• Weekend Seminars – Intensive three-day seminars on public policy topics offered in Winter and Spring 2018.
• Political Studies Program – Our flagship seven-week fellowship will run from June 17 to August 4, 2018. The best candidates for this program are college upperclassmen and recent grads, although we have accepted exceptional freshmen and sophomores in the past.

• War Studies Program – A two-week summer fellowship offered by Kim and Fred Kagan at the Institute for the Study of War. This program is also best-suited to juniors, seniors, and recent grads.

• Summer Courses – This series of one- to two-week seminars allows students to create their own individualized course of study. Younger students are encouraged to apply for these seminars, as are upperclassmen who have other obligations during the summer.

As always, all programs come with housing and funds to offset living and travel costs. Applicants who apply by our early decision deadline, January 15, 2018, can be accepted by Friday, March 2, 2018. More information can be found at

I would be much obliged if you would circulate the information to students and faculty in your organization and on your campus. Applications and nominations can be submitted via our website.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about our offerings. I look forward to hearing from you!
