About John Jay

John Jay (1745-1829) was arguably the most religious, social, and politically conservative of the principal founders of the American Republic. Named for this important American founder, the mission of the Institute is to prepare committed men and women like Jay for leadership in public life. It is our vision to raise up men and women of high principles who are characterized by the virtues of wisdom and justice, truth and mercy, prudence and courage. Clearly there is a pressing need for leadership today. In response, the Institute offers residential fellowships for college graduates aspiring to public vocations as well as various educational resources for anyone interested in exploring the nexus of religion and public life.
