The First Liberty DC Fellowship

Equipping Rising Leaders to Build a Free and Flourishing Society

First Liberty’s DC Fellowship provides high achieving students the opportunity to hear, meet and network with the best and brightest minds advancing a classically liberal worldview today.

The DC Fellowship Experience

When you join First Liberty in and around our national capitol, you will learn all about public policy–what it is, the role statistics play in research, opinion writing, job searching, and funding and management. This hands-on experience will help deepen your understanding of the foundational concepts our society is built on–and how you can bring those concepts back in focus for the public today.

After you officially complete First Liberty’s DC Fellowship, you will be equipped with the motivation and information you need to promote authentic freedom for all Americans, starting right in your own circle of peers.

Why Should I Apply?

The First Liberty DC Fellowship is ideal for high achieving students who aspire to work for federal, state, or local governments, as well as those who want to pursue a career related to public policy, lobbying, or think tank research.

Our fellows often come from programs in law, history, philosophy, and political science, but students from all fields of study are welcome.
