High School Fellowship

From Classroom to Capitol: Elevate Your Leadership

At every turn, the Left presses its agenda and our nation’s schools are no exception. From “gender-affirmation" therapists and trans-identifying sports “champions” to the onslaught of anti-family and anti-America propaganda in the classrooms. Enough is enough.  

Introducing The Heritage Foundation’s High School Fellowship—a transformative fellowship designed to connect and equip bright high school students, like yourself, to defend your values in the classroom and throughout your lives.  

As a High School Fellow, you won’t just watch from the sidelines. You’ll be engaged in the national conservative conversation, participate in real-life policy projects, and connect with influential leaders.  

If you’re a high school student ready to take your conservative leadership to the next level, apply for the Heritage High School Fellowship today.
