The Urban Institute Summer Academy for Public Policy Analysis and Research is a unique and challenging program of skills-building, career development, and mentoring for minority undergraduates interested in careers in public policy research.
The year-long fellowship begins with an intensive eight-week summer program. Our summer program gives students between their junior and senior year of college the skills and exposure crucial to obtaining highly competitive entry positions in the field. After students successfully complete the summer program, we follow up with continued mentoring, research conference opportunities, job and graduate school counseling, and research paper publication during their final year of college.
The UI Summer Academy is free to students who are accepted. In addition, the program will provide students with:
* Round trip transportation to Washington, DC
* Housing at nearby George Washington University dormitories
* $3,000 stipend*
