Hertog Foundation Political Studies Summer Program

The Hertog Political Studies Program, mid-June to mid-August in Washington, DC, offers exceptional students a unique opportunity to undertake a broad and rigorous study of political ideas and institutions, public policy, and statesmanship. Students will read classic texts in the history of political philosophy with outstanding faculty from institutions across the country. They will explore the fundamental principles of American politics and the opinions that distinguish left and right in America. They will consider major challenges that American policymakers confront. And they will closely examine political leadership with prominent men and women who shape American public policy.

All housing costs are covered, and each student receives a $2,500 stipend to cover ancillary expenses (or to help offset travel costs where applicable).
