ISI Honors Program

The ISI Honors Program is a highly selective undergraduate fellowship that takes you deep into the traditions of liberty. It’s an intellectually immersive experience like no other.

If you are a hardworking, dedicated, undergraduate conservative leader as of Spring 2024, you are encouraged to apply to the 2024 ISI Honors Program, which begins with a weeklong, all-expenses-paid summer conference from August 4 – August 10, 2024, at ISI Kirby Campus, Wilmington, DE. 

What It’s Like

Imagine gathering with top undergraduates from across the nation for an in-depth, weeklong (and all-expenses-paid) summer conference exploring the conservative intellectual tradition . . .

. . . learning from, being mentored by, and forming friendships with leading professors from many different colleges across many disciplines . . .

. . . being invited to exclusive weekend seminars . . .

. . . forming lifelong friendships with like-minded, intellectually curious students . . .

. . . joining an alumni network that includes scholars, authors, government officials, journalists, attorneys, judges, and more . . .

That’s what the ISI Honors Program is all about. 

The application deadline for the 2024 Honors Program is February 4, 2024.
