Over a 4-month period participants of the program will attend 6 sessions on Capitol Hill, one program in Hoover’s Washington, D.C. office, and conclude with a more demanding seminar on Stanford campus over three days. Participants will receive round-trip airfare and ground transportation to Stanford University from Washington, DC, housing on Stanford’s campus, and those meals that are part of the seminar. The Hoover Institution diligently complies with congressional ethics rules.
What You’ll Learn
Participants will be offered an intense program of lectures, roundtable discussions, interactive case studies, and panel discussions led by Hoover scholars and complemented by scholars from other academic and policy institutions. Topics will vary from year to year but will relate to the broad area of economics and economic growth.
Who Should Submit Interest?
