Innovation Scholars

Launched in 2023, our two-year, full-time program offers a unique early career experience through an intellectually stimulating environment at the intersection of business and government.

Innovation Scholars have the opportunity to work with our network of blue-chip companies, innovative small businesses, and major foundations that support the nation’s long-term growth. They gain valuable real-world experience on cutting-edge issues and access the biggest thinkers in your field, including leaders in government and industry, located across the street from the White House.
