Gain an In-Depth Understanding of Delaware Policy Issues
Classroom concepts and hands-on practical experience come together for students selected to participate in the Summer Undergraduate Public Policy Fellows program.
Through this scholarship program, students conduct research with faculty and staff in one of the School of Public Policy and Administration's affiliated research centers—the Institute for Public Administration or the Center for Community Research and Service—on public policy issues such as aging, civic engagement, education, the environment, healthcare, healthy communities, homelessness, housing discrimination, land-use planning, poverty, transportation, welfare, and water resources planning.
Fellows learn about policy issues from leaders in the field, network with practitioners, and witness classroom concepts come to life through research and public service. The Summer Undergraduate Public Policy Fellows Program runs for 10 weeks for a total of 300 hours. Fellows take a required UNIV course that includes two field visits outside of work hours and receive a $3,000 scholarship.
The application is now open for those wishing to apply for Summer 2019:
