George C. Marshall Fellows Program

The Heritage Foundation is pleased to announce its George C. Marshall Fellows Program. This program is aimed at cultivating the next generation of future leaders in national security and foreign policy.

We believe that future conservative leaders need more than expertise in particular policy areas. They also need the ability to appreciate and synthesize America’s traditions, values, and worldwide challenges into a grand strategy. The Marshall Fellows program is intended to provide exceptional young conservatives with the opportunity to appreciate this unique and essential component of American strategic leadership—the capacity to act as a grand strategist.

The fellowship introduces participants to the skills, knowledge, and attributes that contribute to making American grand strategy by engaging with some of the nation’s leading conservative thought leaders. The total program runs from March to September and incorporates lecture programs, several field trips and social events created by the program’s participants. In addition to participating in the sessions, fellows participate in a class project of its own choosing which the group will develop during the course of the fellowship under the guidance of a group mentor.
