Sponsored by Hertog Foundation

The Hertog Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2021 fellowships for college undergraduates and recent graduates.

This year, the Hertog Foundation is offering a suite of online and in-person programs. Our residential Political Studies Program brings together top college students to the nation’s capital to explore the theory and practice of politics in an intensive seminar setting with outstanding faculty. Our virtual Summer Courses offer the same high-quality instruction and seminar experience, but with the flexibility and convenience of online education. 

Join us for a virtual open house to learn more.


  • Location: Washington, DC
  • Dates: 5-week program, July 12 – August 14, 2021
  • Funding: Housing and all course materials, plus a $2,500 stipend

This highly competitive residential fellowship spans five weeks in Washington, DC. Fellows will take morning and afternoon seminars on a wide variety of subjects, from political philosophy to economics, and foreign policy. Up to 18 fellows will be selected. 


  • Location: Online
  • Duration: 2 weeklong courses | 8 courses running over a series of week

Our virtual Summer Courses meet over one week or a series of weeks. The one-week sessions offer an intensive course of study on a political text or theme. The weekly sessions allow for deeper reflection between seminars and tackle larger works and topics. Choose the seminar that best fits your interests and schedule. 

Offerings include courses on Machiavelli’s The Prince, Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Religion & Politics, Free Speech in a Fractured Republic, US-China strategic competition, and The Federalist & Contemporary Debates.
