Become a CPI Fellow

Our fellowships are oriented toward helping conservatives become leaders, policy professionals, and effective communicators.

Conservative Partnership Academy offers three fellowships.



The “Magnus Fellowship” is geared towards seasoned staffers. This fellowship will equip you with the skills to be a leader in the conservative movement. From how to establish good office culture, to how to manage a budget, to understanding many of the organizations and individuals that make up the conservative movement in D.C., the curriculum is carefully selected to ensure a solid preparation for the next step in your career leading a congressional office or a conservative organization.


The “Intrepidus Fellowship” is geared towards conservative policy staff. This fellowship will prepare the next generation of conservative policy professionals. From the 2nd Amendment, to foreign policy, to energy policy, the curriculum is designed to introduce you to the major policy areas in which Congress and the conservative movement engage. During each session, you will meet leading conservative policy analysts and engage in robust discussions designed to grow your awareness of what conservative policy is and looks like.


The “Veritas Fellowship” is geared towards conservative communications professionals. This fellowship will prepare you by growing your skill base and expanding your ability to effectively communicate on conservative issues. From digital media training, to meeting bookers and editors, to diving into emerging communications trends, you will exit this fellowship ready for the next step in your career.
