2010 Nethercutt Fellowship Program
Each year, the Foundation identifies promising students in America to become Nethercutt Fellows. The program combines academic work in their college or university community; targeted on-site exposure to government, business and leadership in Washington, DC; and the opportunity to intern with a governmental, quasi-governmental or political entity to experience the political process first-hand.

This unique opportunity offers Nethercutt Fellows national exposure, leadership training, high level mentoring and professional development not otherwise available to college students. All experiences from the program are designed to foster in young people an appreciation for the American system of government, the importance of a free society, and the obligations expected of citizens to perpetuate American ideals and principles of liberty.

Academic Learning

The academic program involves lectures from outstanding professors who are experts in the fields of economics, political science, Constitutional history and leadership development. Courses will also be a forum for students to meet and interact with leaders in business, foreign affairs, government and politics in order to appreciate the benefits of living in a free country.

One of the highlights for the Nethercutt Fellows will be an all-expense paid trip to Washington, DC. On this trip, students will visit the White House, the United States Capitol and tour the US Senate and US House of Representatives, meet with Members of Congress, tour selected federal agencies and meet with ranking government officials.

Fellows will also meet with major corporate leaders, trade association personnel and business representatives to get an inside look and receive information about the operations of the private sector’s interaction with government. Fellows will also have the opportunity to meet with representatives of foreign governments and embassy personnel, including international institutional representatives like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

In addition, time will be set aside during the visit to see the institutions and monuments which reflect the sacrifice and leadership that have made our country great since its founding: the US Supreme Court, the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the Washington Monument, the Holocaust Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, the Pentagon and many other historic sights.


As a final component of the Fellowship Program, the students will have an opportunity to intern with a governmental, quasi-governmental or political entity. Examples include: local, state or federal political leaders (i.e. mayor’s office, congressional office, etc.); policy council of the local chamber of commerce; political campaigns; court house/judicial internships; political action committees, etc. This experience will give students a first-hand look at how government works and how they can participate to better their community.

Sports Performance Program Intern
The Rockwood Clinic, a multi-specialty medical practice located in Eastern Washington State, is hosting a sports performance internship for qualified students in exercise science or related fields of study. Rockwood Clinic is entering its 78th year of service and employs over 190 medical/healthcare providers in 32 specialty areas, including exercise science, athletic training, physical therapy, orthopedics, and sports medicine. This internship opportunity is based out of our Physical Therapy department and is located in downtown Spokane, WA.
The Sports Performance Program (SPP) is a medically-based training program utilizing specifically designed functional exercise to maximize an athlete’s potential. During the internship, students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and work with highly motivated athletes of all ages and abilities (including the Spokane Shock and Spokane Spiders professional teams) in a fast-paced environment. Our facility uses minimal strength equipment, focusing instead on functional, agility-based exercise.
Interns should expect to have fun, work hard, learn techniques to push high-level athletes, and be willing to learn along the way. Additional educational projects and research are required of this internship to provide further experience and prepare the student for their career. Candidates must be motivated, hard working, have an excellent academic record, conduct themselves professionally, and be highly reliable.

Exercise science and physical education majors would find Rockwood to be an ideal opportunity to incorporate the knowledge they have been acquiring in a hands-on environment. Our program specializes in high-intensity training for a variety of athletes ranging from middle school age to those at the semi-professional level. Interns would also have the ability to gain experience in general conditioning methods. By focusing on training athletes in non-traditional methods and incorporating aspects of performance that are not acquired in the weight room, we look to prepare our athletes to reach their potential and develop in quickness, agility, speed, explosive power, core strength, and balance. Interns would find this an ideal opportunity to think outside the box while acquiring valuable knowledge in the sports field.
