The National Review Institute is now accepting applications for its next class of Washington Fellows. Each year, this competitive program brings together a small group of young conservative professionals in a variety of fields to meet with prominent figures in journalism, government, and the academy. Through readings, meetings, and dinner discussions over the course of the year, Fellows will explore the major themes of the conservative intellectual movement and build a lasting network of peers who share a common interest in upholding the principles of a free society.  Past events have featured speakers such as Charles Krauthammer, Jonah Goldberg, Michael Barone, Robert P. George, Charles Kesler, and Stephen Moore. If interested, please send your résumé and a concise statement of your interest in the program (no more than 500 words). Please send applications to WashingtonFellows@NRInstitute.org. Applications due by Friday, September 7, 2012.
