Offering exceptional students a unique learning experience focused on the serious study of politics.
Hudson Institute Political Studies offers top undergraduates a Summer Fellowship in political theory and practice that broadens and deepens understanding of public policy and American political principles. The Fellowship combines rigorous study of politics and political thought through week-long seminars led by master teachers, policy workshops featuring think tank experts and experienced government officials, and a distinguished speaker series of exemplary figures from public life. The 2016 Summer Fellowship featured seminars that examined Plato’s Republic, Machiavelli’s The Prince, and Shakespeare’s The Tempest, along with selections from the Bible, Federalist Papers, Lincoln-Douglas Debates, and current scholarship on American foreign policy in the Middle East.
