The Strategic Fellows Program at The Institute of World Politics is an intensive three-week program focused on providing company grade officers and senior NCOs guided introduction to development of national security policy at the strategic and Federal level.
Led by expert scholar-practitioners from the Institute, participants will explore key strategic issues through a combination of graduate level lectures and experiential activities in the National Capital Region. The Program emphasizes critical thinking, effective oral and written communication, and enhanced appreciation for the Department of Defense's geo-strategic priorities. In addition, participants will explore sources of friction and opportunities to enhance integration in the policy making process between the Department of Defense, the Interagency, Congress, and the Executive branch.
Members of the armed forces will learn about each other's functions so that critical decision making can be more collaborative. When you master the different arts of statecraft, you will be better at discerning, forecasting, preventing, mitigating, managing and, if necessary, prevailing in international conflicts.
