****The Public Policy Scholars Program has been suspended until further notice.***
The Public Policy Scholars Program (PPSP) was created to give students of color the opportunity to work as interns with elected officials and within other sectors shaping public policy and to receive a stipend, as they complete their degrees. It is instrumental in exposing students to the fundamentals of creating, shaping and implementing public policy initiatives.
We believed that this exposure is critical in developing the next generation of decision-makers within the public and private sectors.
