The Europa Fellowship brings together a selective group of professionals committed to preserving and advancing the principles of liberty, prosperity, and beauty. Over six days of intensive seminars with renowned faculty, fellows explore the foundational principles of liberty, prosperity, and beauty within the context of European culture and our shared civilization.
Convened in the beautiful Károlyi Castle of Fehérvárcsurgó, Hungary, the Europa Fellowship provides an opportunity for participants to explore the interrelationships among liberty, prosperity, and beauty while acquiring the necessary tools to further their education and become effective leaders in their respective communities and career fields.
Intended for recent graduates, graduate students, and young professionals who have demonstrated their leadership potential, the Europa Fellowship focuses on grounding future leaders in the early stages of their academic and professional development in the ideals of responsible liberty. Residents of Europe (particularly those from Central and Eastern Europe) and the United Kingdom are encouraged to apply, as are residents of North America and elsewhere with personal, professional, or intellectual ties to the region.
All materials, accommodations, and meals are provided during the program. Fellows are responsible for all other expenses related to their participation, including transportation to and from the venue.
