|A Distinguished Fellowship in Public Policy in the Nation's Capital
The Emerson Fellowship is a public policy internship that commemorates the achievements and personal qualities of the late Congressman Bill Emerson, Westminster Class of 1959, who contributed significantly to the shaping of American public policy over five decades. It is an annual award, exclusive to Westminster College, that provides a unique opportunity to learn about the political system through direct exposure to public and private sector roles in public policy development.
The Fellow receives a credit-bearing internship tailored to his/her particular interest, a generous stipend for living expenses, and an opportunity to meet public policy leaders in Washington, D.C. Internships may take place in a city other than Washington, D.C., as long as it is within the spirit of the Fellowship.
The Fellowship is open to students of any major who are sophomore or above and are planning to return to Westminster the semester following the fellowship.
