Are you a mid-career young professional in the D.C. area interested in learning more about conservative thought? Are you also interested in a great opportunity to grow your professional network? If so, the National Review Institute is looking for you! We are now accepting applications for the prestigious 2013-2014 Washington Fellows program and invite you to take advantage of our extended November 18th deadline.
Each year, NRI invites 25 early- to mid-career young professionals to join it’s Washington Fellows program. Its goal is to introduce succeeding generations — not only young people working in the world of politics and policy, but those in the productive economy, as well — to the conservative movement’s most important thinkers, institutions, and writings, and to build a network of talented, like-minded individuals who can assist one another professionally and personally for years to come.
Beginning this year, the program will institute a new curriculum — designed by NRI board member and celebrated academic Daniel J. Mahoney — that will foster a rigorous examination of conservative principles and how they apply to the issues of the day. Incorporating readings from Burke to Buckley, the syllabus focuses on the foundations of conservative thought.
Washington Fellows will meet for ten weeknight dinner seminars from December 2013 through June 2014. For each session, Fellows will be expected to complete a 25-30 page reading assignment, which they will discuss with a leading conservative thinker. In addition, Fellows will receive invitations to exclusive networking happy hours and other conservative events in DC, as well as an annual alumni gathering.
An ideal candidate has at least ten years of full-time work experience and does not currently work in public policy, but all are welcome to apply.
If you’re interested in applying to become a Washington Fellow, please send a résumé and cover letter explaining why you think this program would be beneficial to you. Be sure to submit your application materials to email@example.com by Monday, November 18th, 2013, at 5:00p.m.
