Claremont Fellowships

We educate the best and most promising young writers, lawyers, activists, academics, entrepreneurs, and public servants through our annual PubliusLincolnJohn Marshall, and Speechwriters, and Sheriffs Fellowship programs and engage this next generation of conservative leaders in a life-long study of the true principles of government and their application to today’s policies.

Each fellowship is designed for a different audience, but all are equal in their intense curriculum of daily seminars and relaxed evening symposia examining the historical arc leading from the American Founding to the progressivism of today.
