  • Identify the critical influencers for your issues and connect to persuade
  • Develop your personal brand to advance your policies
  • Expand your reach beyond current channels by employing multiple domains
  • Know what works by measuring your impact

Who should apply and when is the application deadline?
Communications professionals, policy researchers, and subject-matter experts at all career levels. Fellows must have demonstrated engagement in advancing conservative public policy issues. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, August 18 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Are additional details about the program content and instructors available?

What's the total time commitment required to participate in the program?
The selection process will be highly-competitive so we ask that fellows commit to attend the program in its entirety. In addition, fellows should plan to spend approximately 1-3 hours per week on assignments outside of class time. Utilizing the knowledge and techniques learned throughout the program, fellows will also complete and submit a capstone project.

All applicants will receive final notification of selection for the program on or before Friday, September 3.
