Graduate Archer Fellowship Program


About the Graduate Archer Fellowship program

The Graduate Archer Fellowship Program was established in 2010 by The University of Texas System as a way to bring graduate and medical students interested in policy and politics to our nation’s capital to learn about the federal government and public service. Archer Fellows live, learn and work in the heart of Washington, D.C., during the summer.

During their summer in D.C., fellows will enroll in two courses and a practicum experience. Additional information on academics can be found on the Archer Center website.

Selection of Archer Fellows is based on a competitive process, and we are pleased to be able to offer this experience to highly motivated graduate students of The University of Texas System, including students at UTHealth Houston School of Public Health.
