The Public Policy and Leadership Conference (PPLC) seeks to provide students from underrepresented, underserved, low socioeconomic status areas access and opportunity to graduate programs focused on Public Policy and International Affairs. This concentration stems from a core belief that our communities are best served by the public managers, policymakers, and community leaders who represent the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of their constituencies.
Students admitted to the conference will be granted access to a weekend full of information pertaining to graduate programs in public policy, career opportunities, and fellowships. Harvard professors, staff, and students will conduct various workshops on policy issues, career planning, resume building, and leadership. Finally, participants will learn about graduate school application strategies and Graduate School funding opportunities such as public service-related fellowships.
Program ELIGIBILITY is limited to college freshmen and sophomores who are either US Citizens, Permanent Residents, or DACA recipients, attending a US Institution. Applicants must have a 3.0 GPA or above and demonstrate an interest in Public Service.
