Please take a moment to consider supporting the Postsecondary National Policy Institute’s (PNPI) Summer Scholars Program. In a city where many internships are unpaid, PNPI’s Summer Scholars Program provides talented students with demonstrated financial need an opportunity to gain valuable work experience in federal higher education policy by offering them a fully funded experience.
Social distancing has made our traditional in-person internship an impossibility; but given how few opportunities for paid summer internships and jobs in Washington remain, and how important it is to bring underrepresented communities into the policymaking arena, we have decided to push forward with this year’s cohort, albeit virtually.
During their time with us, scholars will engage in research, draft reports, attend policy events, prepare resources for policymakers, and virtually meet and network with policy professionals across the city. Our goals for the Summer Scholars program are three-fold: provide scholars with opportunities to build their knowledge base, build scholars’ professional networks, and inspire our scholars to someday return to Washington for a career in federal policymaking. Please consider helping us reach these goals by donating to the program.
We encourage you to watch the linked video featuring past scholars and to read more about the Summer Scholar Program and all of our scholar alumni here: http://pnpi.org/summer-scholars/
Thank you for your support of PNPI’s Summer Scholars Program!
