Georgia Tech may select one student to participate in the Presidential Fellows Program. This non-resident program offers 75 select undergraduates and graduate students a year-long opportunity to study the American Presidency and public policy-making process. Fellows participate in a fall and spring leadership conference in Washington, DC and discuss national issues with Presidential scholars and are briefed by public policy experts and senior government officials.

Fellows undertake an original research project on an aspect of the modern Presidency and write a 15-page paper. They also write two essays that are considered for publication in the annual anthology of the 20 best essays.  The Program is affiliated with the Center for the Study of the Presidency:  http://www.thepresidency.org/what-we-do/current-programs/presidential-fellows-program
