THE STORY:

Beginning in 2016, the Postsecondary National Policy Institute (PNPI), a nonprofit that provides professional development to higher education policymakers, launched its first Summer Scholar Program and since then, has brought two scholars to Washington D.C. every summer for a unique summer internship opportunity.


While in Washington, our summer scholars engage in research, prepare reports, attend policy events, compile resources for congressional staff and meet and network with policy professionals. We’re proud that upon completion of their summer experience, all of our scholars have expressed interest in working in public policy as a long-term career goal. 


We’re proud because we believe it is important that the people creating national programs designed to support students pursuing a college degree reflect the actual experiences of today’s college students, individuals who are increasingly financially strapped, non-white and often balancing the demands of work, parenting and school.


In a city where the cost of living can be over $2,000 a month, PNPI’s Summer Scholar Program provides students with demonstrated financial need an opportunity to live and work in the nation’s capital by offering a fully-funded intern experience.  Scholars are provided with accommodations and transportation, and are paid for the work that they do.


Our goal is to continue to bring to Washington a diverse group of students who could not otherwise afford to intern here in hopes that we can inspire them to join the ranks of federal postsecondary policymakers. 


We are excited at the possibility of further helping to build the bench of future policymakers with your help. Your contribution will help us build upon and expand our current program’s reach!


For instance, a donation of: 

$25 could pay for metro fare for one week for one scholar.

$50 could pay for metro fare for one week for both scholars. 

$250 could pay for metro fare for the entire summer for one scholar.

$500 could pay for metro fare for the entire summer for both scholars.

$500 could pay for transportation to and from DC for one scholar.

$1,000 could pay for transportation to and from DC for both scholars.

$3,500 could pay for summer housing in a dorm for one scholar.

$7,000 could pay for summer housing in a dorm for both scholars.
