The Postsecondary National Policy Institute (PNPI)’s 2019 Summer Intern Scholar Program

Posted by Postsecondary National Policy Institute on February 19, 2019

The Postsecondary National Policy Institute (PNPI)’s 2019 Summer Scholar Program (May 28- August 2, 2019) provides a unique opportunity for highly-motivated undergraduate and graduate students with demonstrated financial need to learn about federal higher education policy in the nation’s capital.  Fully funded, the program provides scholars with accommodations, a metro card, a move-in stipend, an hourly wage, and transportation to and from Washington D.C. at the start and end of the program.

While in D.C., scholars work with the larger PNPI team to create high-quality learning experiences for current and prospective federal higher education policymakers, draft content for the PNPI website, engage in research on postsecondary issues, and attend D.C. based policy events.  The goal of the program is to provide scholars with an opportunity to build their knowledge base and their network in federal higher education policy.

PNPI’s Summer Scholar Program is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Lumina Foundation, the Kresge Foundation, and with generous support from Terrell Halaska Dunn, David Dunn, HCM Strategists, and other individual donors.
