The Claremont Institute recently chose American Greatness writer and Center for American Greatness Mount Vernon Fellow, Karl Notturno, to participate in its selective 2019 Publius fellowship program.
Notturno will join 13 other young professionals and graduate students in Claremont, California, for two weeks this summer to study conservative political thought and its influence on American government.
The program was launched in 1979 to educate conservatives who could be the nation’s future leaders, statesmen, journalists, and academics.
Fellows will attend seminars on American, conservative, and progressive political thought taught by Claremont Institute scholars and allies. They will also study founding documents including the Declaration of Independence and the Federalist Papers along with readings ranging in topics from slavery to modern foreign policy.
Notturno’s work with American Greatness focuses on politics, public policy, and culture. He also serves as the executive director of A Soldier’s Home, a nonprofit that helps homeless veterans. He works as a lobbyist and consultant in D.C. and writes music in his spare time.
Notturno graduated from Yale University with degrees in philosophy and history.
