The Curriculum  

The Illinois Lincoln Series provides an unique experience for each fellow, helping to inform and educate fellows at all political levels.  The curriculum begins with the basics on the structure of the Republican Party and what fellows will experience during the fellowship.  Each program thereafter expands on some aspect of what is learned in the first program beginning with county government and public speaking and followed by state and federal government, ethics, campaign school and media relations. Each program is set up not only to educate and inform, but also to network with speakers, state and federal legislators, government officials, foreign ambassadors, among others. These exciting opportunities set the stage to learn more about the nuances of life in the political world.
