George C. Marshall Fellowship

Providing opportunities to develop grand strategy and practice strategic leadership

About

Mission. The Heritage Foundation’s George C. Marshall Fellows program provides exceptional conservative young professionals with the opportunity to appreciate the development of grand strategy and the practice of strategic leadership. The program strives to provide a comprehensive overview of national security principles and to explain the application of those principles in real-life situations.

Challenge. Today, many top-level staffers and other professionals around Washington, D.C., are educated in one specific aspect of national defense or foreign policy but are not adequately prepared to contribute to the larger framework of national security.

Vision. A comprehensive overview of national defense and foreign policy is vitally important because those who are charged with making important decisions must be able to do so in the context of satisfying the overall national security priorities of the country. 

Don't fight the problem, decide it.

George C. Marshall

George C. Marshall Fellows are 25 exceptional conservative, DMV based, mid-level congressional staff, executive branch personnel, policy analysts, and defense industry employees.
