Young adults, this may be for you: 2016 Summer Next Leaders Program

The Institute for Policy Studies 2016 Summer Next Leaders Program is looking for applicants.   The deadline is March 31.   About this leadership opportunity:
The Institute for Policy Studies seeks dedicated young folks hungry for systemic transformation to join our Next Leaders Summer Program. Let’s be clear– this isn’t your typical summer internship. The world crisis in governance, economic stability, and ethical guidance demands that we do our best to prepare to secure and sustain a more just, green, and peaceful future starting, well, yesterday. The Next Leaders Program aims to compel action by sharpening young voices and new ideas through training in public scholarship, a term we define as the connection between policy research and grassroots activism. Team up with us for this 10 week program, and you can forget fetching coffee and filing folders!

Our ideal applicants will be interested in exploring lasting careers in social justice, will be conversational and persuasive writers, and have a deep belief in intersectional, equitable solutions. Although we are not explicitly limiting our applicant pool, we believe that rising Juniors, Seniors, recent graduates, and first year master’s students will gain the most out of this program.
