Description: NOTE: THIS IS NOT A JOB BUT A SUMMER SEMINAR PROGRAM
The AEI Summer Honors Program is an intensive two-week public policy and career development experience for undergraduate student leaders. Term I will take place June 1 – 12, 2015, and Term II from June 15 – 26, 2015. Students may attend one of the two terms. Participants will study two selected policy topics in depth in small seminar discussions with top experts, broaden their knowledge through daily lunches with policymakers and business leaders, and develop their career and leadership skills through high-level networking opportunities. All students receive a $500 stipend, travel voucher, housing, and meals on class days. Limited additional funding is available based on need.
Accepted students will be strongly encouraged to attend the AEI Summer Idea Summit between the two terms (afternoon of Friday, June 12 – Sunday, June 14) and will be able to use their free housing for the extra weekend.
