PURCELLVILLE, VA – Two Patrick Henry College juniors, Benjamin Mills and Kyle Murray, have been selected by the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) to participate in an undergraduate fellowship program designed to teach students about terrorist threats directed at America and allied democracies around the world. Mills and Murray are both majoring in government.

Nationwide, only 35 students were selected by the FDD, a Washington, D.C.-based policy institute, to take part in the program. The year-long fellowship begins with a 14-day trip to Israel in August, where the program participants will be based at Tel Aviv University and will hear presentations from military, intelligence, and political officials, as well as academic experts and the ambassadors of India, Jordan, Turkey, and the United States. Mills and Murray, along with the other FDD Fellows, will also take part in a number of excursions to military bases and border positions to better understand how democratic states fight terrorism.

Patrick Henry College, located in Purcellville, Virginia, just 50 miles from the nation's capital, is a classical Christian liberal arts college dedicated to timeless biblical values and the spirit of the American founding. Since opening its doors in 2000, PHC has been training men and women to lead the nation and shape the culture. A PHC education combines rigorous academics, a biblical worldview, a classical liberal arts core curriculum, and apprenticeship methodologies to produce graduates who are uniquely qualified to serve God and mankind.
