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 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.

Publius Fellowship: A two-week “boot camp” in American political thought for recent college graduates, graduate students, and individuals beginning their careers in scholarship, journalism, or government.

Lincoln Fellowship: A one-week program for public policy professionals, senior journalists, and media veterans who are exercising influence in key positions in national politics.

John Marshall Fellowship: A one-week program teaching the natural law jurisprudence of the American Founding to the next generation of legal thinkers and practitioners.

Speechwriters Fellowship: A weekly, evening program for speechwriters combining an education in the principles of the American Founding with a study of modern political speech craft.
