- Aspen Institute Liberty Fellowship (South Carolina ONLY)
Liberty Fellows share a core value – transforming a mere hope of making South Carolina a stronger state to achieving that goal. The Liberty Fellowship brings a dynamic mix of South Carolina leaders together – those who represent the broadest spectrum of political, social and geographic realms – to collaborate around this shared value.
The key focus of the program is an intense two-year experience undertaken by 20 young leaders – Liberty Fellows. These Fellows are carefully selected from a pool of strong candidates nominated from all across the state. A new initiative, Liberty Forums, allows any South Carolinian with a passion for progress to collaborate on issues through these Forums.
