Prize application deadline: Rolling (students looking for summer funding should apply by 1 April)
Students interested in conducting a project related to public
service. Preference is given to students who already have a
place in an existing program or who have created their own program.

one or more undergraduate or graduate students working in public
service. The award is meant to enable the student to gain practical
experience in public service by taking a no-pay or low-pay job
during a summer or other term.
complete application includes the following: a resume, a statement
of short- and long-term goals, three letters of recommendation,
and a supporting letter from a faculty member. Winners are notified
