IWP hosts Annenberg Summer Fellowship Program

This summer, The Institute of World Politics is hosting a ten-session educational curriculum supporting the Council of American Ambassadors (CAA) Annenberg Summer Fellowship Program at our main campus in Washington, D.C. The participants will be a group of six CAA Fellows, known as Ambassadors Walter and Leonore Annenberg Fellows. They are spending their summer working in D.C. as interns at the U.S. State Department.

The fellows are a diverse group of undergraduate students from various colleges and universities across the U.S. IWP faculty members are meeting with the Annenberg fellows for discussions on a variety of topics, including the role of intelligence, the diplomatic community, the defense establishment, ethical statecraft, and the constitutional framework of foreign powers, among others. The Annenberg Fellowship began in late May and will continue into early August.

The CAA Annenberg Summer Fellows is a prestigious summer program that combines mentoring from former U.S. ambassadors and academic studies in international affairs, augmented with the practical experience of an internship with the U.S. State Department. The potent combination of mentoring, practical training, and academic study inspires and prepares the Fellows to assume the responsibility of helping the United States strengthen our alliances and promote democracy, peace, human rights, and prosperity in our relations with other countries around the world.
