A Message From The Wolcott Foundation Chairman, Michael E. Clark
The Wolcott Foundation assists young, enthusiastic, and highly qualified college graduates seeking a career in government service. The assistance from the Foundation provides the selected student with partial tuition funds, allowing pursuit of a graduate degree as a Wolcott Foundation Fellow from the George Washington University (GWU) in Washington, DC.
This tuition assistance comes with a two-year post-graduation stipulation. It specifies that the scope of Public Service cannot be with an elected politician or an organization that is not government sponsored. This requirement is the cornerstone of the Foundationís belief in public service for the good of the citizens of the United States.
George Washington University (GWU) is perfectly suited as the Foundationís educational partner in providing Fellowships to outstanding students seeking a career in public service.
George Washington University is located just a few blocks from the seat of government in the United States. The Universityís outstanding reputation as a premier educational institution, enables our students to work in government positions while attending classes. This allows them the opportunity to put their classroom education to practical application. Many of our Fellows continue their government careers with the same agency they first discovered while attending GWU.
The success of our partnership with GWU is demonstrated in the accomplishments of our 400+ Senior Wolcott Fellows. Several have served our country as United States Ambassadors and high-ranking officials in the many government departments.
The Wolcott Foundation is composed of a group of Master Masons from the United States and several foreign countries. These Master Masons believe in the concept of education being the driving force behind a successful democratic government.
If you believe you are a qualified student with the passion to pursue your dreams and the dedication to be challenged by studies at a university requiring performance at the highest educational level, please complete an application according to the rules set forth on this website.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Wolcott Foundation Fellowships are awarded to U.S. citizens
who are attending or applying to
the George Washington University School of Business, Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, or the Elliott School of International Affairs.
These awards are designed to encourage young scholars with outstanding academic, civic, and social credentials to pursue public service careers.
High Twelve International is an association of Master Masons.
