Student Fellows Program

The Public Policy Center (PPC) Fellows program is designed to recognize the contributions of students who, under the mentorship of our faculty and staff, create and share new knowledge from policy-relevant administrative and research activities, while contributing to the vitality of the PPC. Student research fellows will have a title consistent with their enrollment status and role at the Center (e.g. Undergraduate Research Fellow).
