As classes begin on the Forty Acres on Wednesday, we are excited to welcome students back with many exciting new opportunities this semester. 

Twenty-two undergraduate students were selected to participate in our 2017-2018 Undergraduate Fellows Program, receiving training and mentorship in the profession and study of national security, history, and intelligence. Fellows convene monthly throughout the academic year to participate in discussion groups, be mentored by the Clements Center’s affiliated scholars, meet with distinguished guests and visiting speakers, and exchange ideas on their course projects.
