We are always looking for Hoosier women making an impact in their communities and demonstrating leadership in their place of work. Applicants must also be committed to the process of full participation of women in politics and government, and able to confirm a loyalty to the Republican Party.

Each year we select 20 women for the program who will then participate in an eight-month program, including a four-day trip to Washington, DC. Here, they will meet elected officials, form relationships, and receive political leadership training to prepare them for public office.

Interviews will be conducted in September and we will select class members in October. From October to April we will meet monthly in Indianapolis finishing the year with our graduation ceremony in Washington, D.C. in May.

Class members will be responsible for the $250 participation fee which will cover meals and transportation fees for class sessions and the $500 Washington, D.C. trip fee which will cover hotel, air fare and meals.

Applications for the Lugar Series Class of 2024-2025 close on August 1, 2024.
