Curious about the Hertog Foundation’s Summer 2021 Fellowships?

Join us February 25 at 6pm ET for the second in a series of virtual open houses. This open house will feature Political Studies alum, Shilo Brooks, and the Foundation’s own Mary Elizabeth Halper in conversation about succeeding in graduate school and pursuing an academic career. Join us and learn more about the academic life and Hertog programs!

Shilo Brooks (Political Studies ’10) is Faculty Director of the Engineering Leadership Program, Associate Faculty Director of the Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization, and an affiliated faculty member in the Engineering Management Program and the Herbst Program for Engineering, Ethics & Society at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He has held fellowships at Princeton University and the University of Virginia, and has been a visiting professor of government at Bowdoin College. He teaches and writes about leadership, liberal education, politics, and science. He received his Ph. D. in political science from Boston College, and his B.A. in liberal arts from the Great Books Program at St. John’s College, Annapolis.


If you were unable to attend our February 10 open house, where we answered questions about our online and residential fellowships, please view the recording of the event here. In addition to answering your questions, we discussed our planned public health mitigation protocols for an in-person program as well as the structure and variety of our online seminars.
