Program 1

The John Jay Institute Fellowship

Program Description
The John Jay Institute believes that leaders are
made, not born. Consequently, its Fellowship Program is designed to
inspire men and women with a Christian vision for society and to equip
them with the spiritual, intellectual, and professional disciplines
necessary for effective faith-informed public service. The Fellowship
begins with an intensive semester-long academic residency in Philadelphia, PA. A semester-long "externship" follows the
residency with field placement in a national or international
governmental agency or non-governmental organization. Externships are
tailored to each fellow's vocational interests. Placements vary widely
and have included the U.S. Congress, Heritage Foundation, Ethics and
Public Policy Center, Institute on Religion and Democracy, International
Justice Mission, Opportunity International, and CARE in London,
England.

Upon successful completion of the academic residency and externship,
the Fellowship Program offers life-long membership in a professional
fraternity that includes graduate school and job placement assistance,
mentoring, career coaching, networking, and continuing education
opportunities. Like similar prestigious postgraduate programs, the
Institute's Fellowship is merit-based and offers a competitive stipend
and housing benefit for its academic residency and externshiintellectual, and
professional fortitude for faith-informed public service, the
Fellowship's academic residency consists of a core curriculum of
interdisciplinary studies in theology, philosophy, ethics, history,
politics, and jurisprudence. The Institute uses a "block course" system
with 3-week long sequential courses that build upon one another. Thus,
students are able to focus their attention on one course at a time.
Classes are conducted Monday through Thursday in the Socratic teaching
method. Each class day is framed by morning and evening chapel services
that encourage common prayer, Scripture meditation, spiritual
reflection, and service. Fridays are typically reserved for field
studies and other co-curricular activities relating to leadership
development.
