The John Marshall Project (JMP) of the Department of Political Science at Boston College promotes a focused study of the citizenship and statesmanship needed by a democratic and constitutional republic. The mission of the Project absorbs and expands upon the Program for the Western Heritage, directed by Robert Faulkner and Susan Shell and housed within the Department of Political Science. The Marshall Project also cooperates directly with the Marshall Program in Political Philosophy and Civic Leadership, currently directed by Robert Faulkner under the auspices of the Clough Center.

The activities of the Project include lectures and other appearances on campus by notable public figures and other political and intellectual leaders, the awarding and supervision of two Marshall Doctoral Fellowships and one Marshall Post-Doctoral Fellowship, and selection of ten to twenty undergraduate Marshall Fellows, with the future possibility of a certificate program in civic leadership. The undergraduate fellows participate in reading groups, lectures, and summer study and research, as well as special conferences where pertinent.

The JMP operates with generous financial support from the Jack Miller Center and the Thomas W. Smith Foundation.
