Afternoons will be devoted to on-site visits hosted by at least one representative of the organization or agency sponsoring the event. Housing is provided by American University, and meals will be covered. Students will be responsible for travel to and from Washington, DC., but will be provided tickets for transportation during the program.

The AHI WaPoNS program, now in its sixth year, aims to prepare promising and motivated college students for the challenges of a rapidly changing global environment by offering them an opportunity to engage with some of the best thinkers on and practitioners in the field of national security. Participants will be afforded a rare inside glimpse of the many different cultures that must all work together to succeed. By observing the process of national security policymaking up close, from the perspective of the practitioners themselves, the program will serve to encourage and enhance the students’ leadership skills and open opportunities for future professional development.
