Georgetown University Scholarships

The Naples Council on World Affairs offers full scholarships to Collier County high school juniors for a one week program on International Relations or National Security at the prestiious Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

The program allows students to experience college campus life by living in a dormitory with other high school students from across the U.S.A. and foreign countries. It also allows them to become familiar with our nation's capital, Washington D.C. Most important, it provides them an opportunity to experience lectures from prominent professors in these fields plus hear from key players in the respective fields.  Visits will also be made to important institutions, such as Congress, Central Intelligence Agency, foreign embassies, etc.

The students who have attended these programs over the past few years have nothing but the highest praise for the programs.

Much more information about the programs can be found on the Georgetown University Summer Programs for High School Students site; (click here to visit their website for more information). Also feel free to email Sophie Hewson, the local Outreach leader of the Georgetown Scholarship Committee at or call at 239-877-1822.
