Choate Summer : John F. Kennedy Program In Government And Public Service

Wallingford, CT

Overview

Established to honor the memory of President Kennedy, a member of Choate's Class of 1935, The John F. Kennedy '35 Institute in Government is designed to stimulate your curiosity about public policy and your desire to serve the public interest.

The highlight of the program is 4 days in Washington, D.C. As a Kennedy Institute participant, you will see government in operation by:

  • Watching House and Senate debates
  • Observing committee hearings on Capitol Hill
  • Spending time with officials in The White House and Supreme Court

You will get a real insider's feel for politics by meeting with representatives of interest groups, national political parties, and the media.

Eligibility

Applicants for The Kennedy Institute should have completed their freshman year in high school and a course in U.S. history or its equivalent. Knowledge of politics is not necessary, but your desire and willingness to be engaged in various topics — politics, economics, or international affairs — is essential. For application information, please see the How to Apply page.
