Upcoming Events


The Shaftesbury Fellowship

The Shaftsbury Fellowship’s rigorous curriculum consists of weekly readings and discussions on topics such as:

  • natural law and natural rights
  • the origins and nature of religious liberty
  • conflicts and concord between church and state
  • the place of the nation-state in the modern world
  • global dimensions of religious freedom

Become a fellow and you’ll be paired with a faculty member or professional mentor, who will provide guidance as you develop a publishable research article on a relevant topic of your interest.


The Savannah Seminar

Founded in 1733 as the British colonial capital of Georgia, Savannah is one of America’s most historically significant and beautiful cities. Savannah is an appropriate venue for the CRCD’s Seminar on Democratic Ideals, as it embodied early American experiments in pluralism, religious liberty, and civil society.

The CRCD Savannah Seminar is ideal for high achieving college juniors and seniors who seek to develop a better understanding of the American founding.


The First Liberty Fellowship

We’ve gathered the best and brightest minds advocating for religious freedom today. As a fellow, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from, meet, and network with these leaders.

When you join us in DC, you will learn all about public policy–what it is, the role statistics play in research, opinion writing, job searching, and funding and management.

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