Fielding Fellows

Explore public service in the executive branch.


A cornerstone of the Fielding Center, the Fielding Fellows program provides a select group of Gettysburg College students with an immersive experience centered on the executive branch of the United States. The year-long fellowship focuses on separation of powers dynamics, constitutional law, and diplomacy. Each year, Fielding Fellows travel to a presidential library to conduct archival research, facilitate on-campus panels and debates, and work on an in-depth public policy project. 

Opportunities experienced by past Fielding Fellows have included:

  • Attending a luncheon with the White House Fellows
  • Visiting the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, MA
  • Receiving a Diplomacy Lab Project from the U.S. State Department
