What you can expect:

This year's Honors Scholars embark on a journey exploring the principles that hold America together and the forces that can tear it apart. Scholars will learn about the five cities identified as shaping the American order—Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, London, and Philadelphia.

Graduates of the ISI Honors Program will join an exclusive fellowship of conservative leaders who are equipped and empowered to remedy what ails American institutions today.

Our Honors Fellows go on to shape culture through virtuous leadership in the wide variety of careers they pursue. We aim to cultivate more than influential policymakers; ISI shapes prudent, principled statesmen and women who bring a clear-eyed historical sensibility to their decision-making.
