Public Policy Program in the News
May 13, 2013 2013 MPP Practicum Reports Now Available
An important component of the Stanford MPP Degree is the Practicum Project, which students begin during their second year after completing core courses. Multidisciplinary student teams apply their skills to a contemporary problem in a major policy exercise with a public sector client.
The 2013 final reports have been published, and they cover such diverse topics as California teacher performance, resource acquisition between China and Latin America, and security and energy needs in the Arctic.
These summer fellowship awards, of up to $5,000 each, are available to continuing Stanford Public Policy students interested in completing a 2013 unpaid summer internship with a public, private or non-profit organization. The internship must be related to the student’s program of study or career plans. Learn more about how to apply by visiting http://publicpolicy.stanford.edu/summer.fellowship
The application deadline is Friday, May 3, 2013.
