The Hertog Foundation Announces Summer 2023 Constitutional Studies Fellows

June 14, 2023 – The Hertog Foundation announced 20 fellows for its 2023 Constitutional Studies Program. Our Constitutional Studies fellows will spend one week this summer studying “The Supreme Court & Precedent” alongside outstanding peers, led by legal expert Adam J. White.

This course will lead fellows through a study of stare decisis and landmark Supreme Court decisions that could by overturned by the Court. The program will also feature guest lectures from Supreme Court advocates who will bring their practical experience to bear on key constitutional questions—from precedent’s place in judicial decision-making to the Court’s role in a democracy.

The Constitutional Studies Program is open to current undergraduate and graduate students, and young professionals. Our fellows represent 16 different colleges and universities, with an average GPA of 3.89. They include a 2022 Rhodes Scholar, a young inventor who was awarded a top prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, and a Morehead-Cain Scholar at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The program is fully subsidized by the Foundation, including housing, all course materials, and a stipend to support fellows’ study.

The Hertog Foundation sponsors several highly competitive and selective educational programs for outstanding individuals who seek to influence the intellectual, civic, and political life of the United States. Learn more about our offerings at
