Annual Awards

During the Spring Presidential and International Fellows Leadership Conference, CSPC holds its annual awards dinner—honoring a leading public servant alongside the Fellows whose papers have been selected for awards.  The CSPC awards are the Publius Award, given for leadership and bipartisanship in government; the Eisenhower Award, given for leadership in national security affairs; and the Hamilton Award, given for leadership in economic or fiscal matters.

 

 

During the awards dinner, the honoree has the opportunity to meet with the CSPC Presidential and International Fellows for a private, off-the-record question and answer session.  In addition to the keynote address delivered at the dinner by the honoree, the award-winning Fellows have the opportunity to present their research to the audience of current and former government officials and business leaders.
