In addition to covering the cost of living, the program will assist students in securing internships at the federal, state and local government; major think tanks and foundations; and community-based nonprofit organizations.

We also provide high-impact leadership training and exclusive mentoring opportunities throughout the summer featuring CKA members, thought leaders, and policymakers.
