Junior Fellowship

An intellectual, cultural, and social opportunity for university students

Time & Location

2019-20

Description

The Zephyr Institute’s Junior Fellowship introduces select undergraduate students to a world of ideas and intellectual friendship. Junior Fellows participate in the life of the Zephyr Institute through intellectual, cultural, and social experiences which seek a richer understanding of the human person and the common good. They also gain access to the Institute's network of graduate students, scholars, and professionals, who serve as mentors as they consider how their talents might best serve the university and the world.

In Fall 2019 and Winter 2020, two cohorts of Junior Fellows attended a dinner seminar on Politics and Transcendence led by Professor Juan Miguel Matheus (Stanford Constitutional Law Center and National Assembly of Venezuela). This seminar drew on readings from Plato, Leo Strauss, and Eric Voegelin and also examined current threats facing democracy. Complementing the seminar were a variety of lectures on natural law, political theology, the philosophy of education, and the intellectual life. The fellowship also included social and cultural engagements.
