ASU Student is Presidential Fellow
July 01, 2013
Donald “Trey” Moore, a junior in Angelo State University’s Honors Program, has been selected as a 2013-14 Presidential Fellow by the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC).
A political science major and philosophy minor from Colleyville, Moore is one of approximately 70 Presidential Fellows, joining about 60 students from other U.S. institutions and up to 10 from various other countries in the 2013-14 class.
As a Presidential Fellow, Moore will participate in a 10-month non-resident fellowship. The selected students will travel to Washington, D.C., for three-day conferences in the fall of 2013 and spring of 2014 to study the American political process and network with top policymakers and government leaders. Each student will also undertake a yearlong research project focused on some aspect of presidential or congressional policy, and will compete for publication of their results in The Fellows Review. Campus faculty advisors and CSPC mentors will aid them with the research projects.
Moore’s participation in the fellowship is being funded through the Alvin and Patricia New Honors Program Enhancement Fund, which was created in 2008 through a $250,000 donation to the ASU Honors Program by former San Angelo Mayor Alvin New and his wife, Patricia, who are both ASU alumni.
Incorporated in 1969, the CSPC is a non-profit, non-partisan policy and education organization located in Washington, D.C. Its Presidential Fellows Program was founded in 1970 as a way to bridge the leadership gap between current and future generations. Since its inception, the program has served more than 1,000 students, many of whom have gone on to compete successfully for major national scholarships. More details are available on the CSPC website at www.thepresidency.org/.
