Our Mission

The Bryce Harlow Foundation is dedicated to advancing the integrity of government advocacy and increasing understanding of its important role in the development of sound public policy.

Our primary activities include encouraging and supporting the next generation of leaders in the lobbying, government relations and related professions through an annual, competitive and prestigious fellowship. The Bryce Harlow Fellows are working full time in lobbying firms, in corporate government affairs offices and on Capitol Hill, and studying part-time toward graduate degrees in business, law, public policy, public administration, communications and others. The fellowships include financial assistance, mentors and other educational opportunities to talented graduate students who also work full time in government, lobbying or related professions. Our fellowship program has helped support the education and growth of more than 250 young professionals. The Foundation also provides speakers for dozens of seminars and workshops in partnership with universities, educational institutions, associations and other groups to explain the important role of government advocacy in developing sound public policy.
