The Archer Center’s Graduate Archer Fellowship Program was established in 2010 as a way to bring graduate students (masters, Ph.D., M.D., J.D) from University of Texas System universities to our nation’s capital. Archer Fellows have the opportunity to learn about policy making and public service through a full-time professional internship and classroom experiences. With the array of government, media, research and cultural institutions in Washington, D.C., students have unparalleled access to seasoned professionals and subject matter experts. As Archer Fellows, students utilize the skills and knowledge developed at their home campuses to address real domestic and global issues we are facing the nation today.
