Do you know a student who is ready to make a difference? Can you see them on Capitol Hill or in local government? Are they interested in defending the Constitution and their rights as Americans? Most of all – do they want to make a difference for future generations?
We have just the thing to set these students on the path of success! The 2012 Constitutional Academy is just what these students need to jump-start their futures in the fields of political science and history through college and career advice from professionals in these sectors, meeting with Members of Congress, participating in model-Congressional hearing activities with other students who have similar interests, through lectures and discussions with college professors, and visiting historical sites where they will explore how history influences our lives today.
The Constitutional Academy will be held in the Metro-Washington, D.C. area from July 9 – July 14, 2012. Scholarships are still available in many areas for students who qualify. Please contact us for more information about scholarship requirements. For students without scholarships, the cost is $750 plus travel to and from Washington, D.C. Students will stay on campus at Marymount University, visit the National Archives, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and the U.S. Capitol, and they will participate in college-level lectures, discussions, activities with the best and brightest students from around the country!
We invite all high school students who are finishing grades 10, 11, or 12 and are interested in history or political science to apply for the 2012 Constitutional Academy. The deadline for submitting applications is May 31, 2012. Please visit our website to learn more about the program or email Academy@BillofRightsInstitute.org.
