Daniel Patrick Moynihan Center: 2020 Undergraduate Moynihan Washington Seminar


The Daniel Patrick Moynihan Center at Assumption College, a newly-inducted JMC partner program, invites undergraduate students to apply for the Moynihan Washington Seminar, a five-day program dedicated to studying the intersection of ideas and action in political life. The seminar will bring students from around the country to the nation’s capital to meet with prominent leaders in law, politics, and journalism who work where ideas and action converge. Participants will also study the writings of Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, one of our nation’s greatest scholar-statesmen.

The seminar will take place from June 8 to June 12, 2020. Fifteen students will be selected to participate. Each student will receive a $500 stipend along with reimbursement for airfare to and from the seminar. Housing and meals will be provided. Applications are open to undergraduate students of any major at any college or university.

If you have questions or need more information, please email Dr. Deborah O’Malley, Associate Director of the Moynihan Center.

The application deadline is February 15, 2020.

From Cicero to Burke and John Adams to James Madison, the convergence of scholarship and statesmanship has produced some of the great insights and great actions in political history. To the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Center, there is no recent exemplar of that tradition, and no greater example of the kind of scholars, statesmen, and citizens the contemporary academy should seek to cultivate, than Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. That cultivation is the mission of the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Center for Scholarship and Statesmanship at Assumption College. The Center seeks a renewal of both political and intellectual life as noble endeavors, never more so than when they converge. Liberal education is where that convergence begins. Political life is where it culminates. Today’s students are tomorrow’s statesmen and scholars. The Daniel Patrick Moynihan Center aspires to encourage a convergence between the two.
