New Internship Opportunities!!!

1. DC Internships
Public Policy and Economics program is now accepting applications for the February 7, 2018 Priority Deadline. We are very happy to announce that through our Leadership Scholars Program, we have at least 25 full scholarships to aid students in attending our summer 2018 programs in Washington, DC. Details may be found by clicking here.

The Institute on Comparative Political and Economic Systems (ICPES) is an eight week summer academic internship program sponsored by The Fund for American Studies in partnership with George Mason University. The program offers undergraduate students a first-hand look at the U.S. political system through:

• An internship placement in public policy or economics
• Courses for credit in economics and government
• Exclusive lectures, briefings and professional development seminars
• Housing in the heart of Washington, DC

Our goal is to help students close the gap between theory and practice and develop skills to manage today’s most pressing policy challenges. As you know, today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. Building on what you have taught them in the classroom, we are committed to providing an educational experience that will prepare your students for successful careers in public policy.

Please share the announcement below with any student whose aspiration is to be among the next generation of professionals to shape tomorrow’s political or public policy landscape.

Students should apply by February 7 for priority admissions and scholarship consideration.
