The Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress invites one Middlebury College to serve as a member of the 2012-13 class of Presidential Fellows. The Center’s Presidential Fellows come to Washington DC to learn about leadership and governance, share research and scholarship, and develop as future leaders in public service. Up to 75 promising undergraduate and graduate students engage in these year long opportunities to study the US presidency, public policy-making, and our Chief Executive’s relations with Congress, the media, allies, and the American public.
Fellows attend two conferences a year in Washington, DC; write papers on and study the Presidency; are mentored by members of the public policy community and government.
