Institute for Advanced Strategic & Political Studies
The Institute (Jerusalem and Washington DC) invites top college graduates in strategic studies, international relations, political science and related fields to apply for a fellowship program in Washington, DC, beginning October. The program consists of three parts: 1.The first part is eight weeks of seminars (October 23 to December 31) taught by recognized scholars in their fields, including Dr. Angelo M. Codevilla, the Program's director. During this portion of the Program the Fellows are trained in substantive areas including the fundamentals of missile defense, geopolitics, and an introduction to security and strategy. A comprehensive examination is given in each course at the end of this rigorous portion of the Program. 2.Part two is subsequent placement in a Congressional committee, subcommittee, or Member's office as a research fellow. During the Congressional portion of the Program, IASPS Strategic Fellows concentrate on areas particularly important to the Committee staff or their Member of Congress. 3.The third part of the Program is the most challenging. Beginning in December, Fellows will begin to prepare a proposal for a piece of original research that they will submit for publication in our series: IASPS Research Papers in Strategy. After having the topic approved, the Fellow must produce a paper of 25 -35 pages that will serve as a model for the work they might do at the highest levels of policy making. Successful applicants who are offered enrollment in the program may apply for a modest monthly stipend ($1,000).
