Feb 4, 2020 2 min read

WASHINGTON -- The Heritage Foundation announced today the selection of the 2020 George C. Marshall Fellows.

Since 2012, the George C. Marshall Fellows Program has provided exceptional 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.

In previous years, the special speakers for Fellowship events have included notable figures from the national security and foreign policy fields like General Michael Hayden; former Senior Director for Strategic Planning on the National Security Council, Paul Lettow; and former Homeland Security Advisor to President George W. Bush Frances Townsend. Fellows will engage with national security and foreign affairs experts through the dinner and discussion events, as well as participate in the annual Yalta Conference Simulation along with cadets from the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va.

The Heritage Foundation selected a diverse group of 27 professionals from all over Washington, D.C.
