In May, The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation and the Jack Miller Center for Teaching America's Founding Principles and History held a three-day gathering in Philadelphia to celebrate the Bradley Graduate and Post-Graduate Fellowship Program.  During the event's three days, speakers and panelists evaluated that which a century of progressivism has done to the country.

The Bradley Fellowship Program is a major part of the Foundation’s program interest in strengthening America’s "intellectual infrastructure" at the higher-education level.  For the program, the Foundation chooses institutions of higher education each year to support graduate and post-graduate students, who are designated as Bradley Fellows. The Fellows are chosen by each institution upon the recommendation of one or more distinguished professors in the humanities, social sciences, and the law.

Speakers at "A Century of Progressivism:  An Evaluation" included Bradley Prize recipients James W. Ceaser, Robert P. George, and George F. Will.  George and Will also serve on the Bradley Foundation's Board of Directors.

Panels examined the impact of progressivism on the three branches of government, political parties and elections, culture, the academy, the welfare state, and foreign policy.

Longtime Bradley Fellows faculty nominator Roy S. Godson was recognized for his career's worth of scholarship in intelligence and national security at Georgetown University and the National Strategy Information Center, which is also supported by Bradley.
