Fellowships

Common Sense Society fellowships offer recent graduates, graduate students, and young professionals the opportunity to study the principles of liberty, prosperity, and beauty with leading scholars in social, respectful environments.

Fellows will leave CSS programs having learned how our Guiding Principles, their interdependence, their necessity to a well-lived life, and their enduring place as cornerstones of free, prosperous, and vibrant communities.

In addition to general fellowships, we will also offer specialized fellowships on subjects such as foreign policy and grand strategy. Join us in exploring how these ideas change lives everywhere by applying for a Common Sense Society fellowship.
