Description

The Zephyr Institute’s Junior Fellowship is a quarter-long program which introduces select undergraduate students to a world of ideas and intellectual friendship. Junior Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in the life of the Zephyr Institute through seminars and lectures on enduring questions in the history of ideas. They will also have access to the Institute’s network of scholars and professionals, who will mentor them in their academic and professional development as they consider how their talents might best serve the university and the world.

 

The theme of this quarter's Junior Fellowship is Politics and Transcendence. Junior Fellows will attend a dinner seminar led by Professor Juan Miguel Matheus on the role of transcendence in political philosophy, focusing on readings from Plato, Leo Strauss, and Eric Voegelin. Complementing the seminar will be a variety of guest lectures on political theology, the philosophy of education, and the intellectual life. The fellowship includes a stipend of $500.
