The Tocqueville Project Undergraduate Program
The Tocqueville Project Undergraduate Fellows Program provides University of New Orleans students with a unique opportunity to pursue, outside of the classroom, academic interests related to ethics, politics, economics, history, and law.
Undergraduate Fellows also become part of a unique community that offers intellectual, cultural, and social opportunities, including intimate dinners with visiting scholars.
