The Intercollegiate Studies Institute Honors Program
Join other exceptional students from all academic disciplines and leading conservative intellectuals for ISI’s premier, all-expenses-paid, week-long summer program.
This year’s theme is God, Man, and State: Liberalism, Individualism, and the Crisis of the Post-Christian Era. Honors scholars will be taken on a journey from Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, London, and to Philadelphia — Russell Kirk’s five cities that shape the American order — to gain perspective about what holds America together, and what can tear it apart.
It is by understanding the foundation of the American order that we can address the drift away from the “permanent things,” with the hopes that graduates of this program can remedy what ails American institutions today through virtuous leadership in any track they pursue.
Faculty members and speakers will join students for the entire week, passing on knowledge and guidance through lectures and discussion groups, and will serve as mentors—helping to further students’ academic and professional careers. But the Honors experience does not end after the week. Honors scholars will also be invited to attend additional lectures throughout the 2023-2024 academic year, led by leading conservative intellectuals. As an Honors scholar, you also have the opportunity to attend ISI’s annual Homecoming weekend as a capstone to the year-long experience, and continue to enjoy access to ISI’s many connections and resources.
If you are a hardworking, dedicated, undergraduate conservative leader, you are encouraged to apply to the 2023 ISI Honors Program. Applications are due by February 3rd. We look forward to reviewing your application!
