Truman National Security Project

Security Scholars

The Congressional Security Scholars Program is a premier leadership development program for Hill staffers, intended to build a generation of congressional staff with a broad understanding of current defense, foreign policy and national security issues. Security Scholars is the go-to program on Capitol Hill for staff seeking training grounded in a 21st century world view.

Security Scholars also gain the practical skills they need to become successful congressional staff and play an integral role in a well functioning Hill office. Congressional Security Scholars form a strong community across the House and Senate who, as an alumni network, have access to the range of Truman Project experts, programs, and ongoing activities.

Congressional Security Scholars is a program of our sister organization, the Truman National Security Institute.
