This series of one- to two-week summer seminars in Washington, DC 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. Offerings include topics such as American Political Thought, American Democratic Capitalism, Thucydides and Today’s Challenges, and Landmark Supreme Court Cases. Fellows receive housing and some meals, plus a stipend. Undergraduates and very recent graduates (2016 or 2017) are eligible. Priority deadline is December 5.
