Local University Conservatives Network

Local University Conservatives Network

Engaging, equipping, and connecting young conservatives for long-term success in public policy

Spring 2022

Are you a freshman or sophomore in college? Trying to start off strong in D.C.?

The Heritage Foundation, D.C.’s premier conservative think tank, wants to prepare you to be part of the next generation of conservative leaders. The Local University Conservatives (LUC) Network brings together D.C.-area undergrads to provide a foundation of conservative thought and community. Apply here!

* For Spring 2022, LUC welcomes conservative Hill interns to join our LUC Network and make the most of their time in Washington. Interns of all years in school may apply.

Through the LUC Network, you will:

  • Sit down with leading policy experts and published authors
  • Learn about and discuss hot policy topics
  • Gain practical insights from experienced D.C. professionals on how to thrive and lead in a public policy office
  • Connect with fellow conservative undergraduates
  • Cultivate essential career skills
  • Set yourself up for internship success

All sessions run from 6:00PM to 7:30PM, and dinner will be provided.
