Fall 2023 & Spring 2024
Are you a college student wanting 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.
Throughout the year, members of the LUC Network will hear from experienced policy professionals, learn essential career skills, and connect with fellow conservatives over complimentary dinner at The Heritage Foundation. Apply here!
*During the school year, LUC welcomes conservative Capitol Hill interns to join our LUC Network and make the most of their time in Washington. Interns of all years in school may apply.
As a member of the LUC Network, you will:
- Sit down with leading policy experts
- Connect with fellow conservative undergraduates and interns
- 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

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