Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply to be selected to represent Georgia Tech in the 2012-13 Presidential Fellows Program.
Georgia Tech’s Fellowships Office will select one student to apply to participate in the yearlong program that provides an opportunity for 75 students to study the U.S. presidency and public policy-making process. Participants will attend leadership conferences in the fall and spring in Washington, D.C., discuss national issues with presidential scholars and meet with public policy experts and senior government officials.
Fellows undertake an original research project on an aspect of the modern presidency or Congress and write a paper that will be eligible for awards and publication.
Applicants need strong academic credentials and an interest in the institutions of the presidency and Congress, international affairs or public policy. All majors and levels of study may be nominated.
Nomination materials include a resume, 300-word statement of interest, transcripts and contact information. Faculty may nominate a student or students may nominate themselves. Nominations should be submitted by Friday, Feb. 24, to Kathryn Meehan in the Georgia Tech Fellowships Office.
