Politics & Policy Fellowships

   Our 2012-2013 Fellows with Cincinnati Council Member Chris Seelbach

The newly established Politics & Policy Fellowship Program at Xavier offers experiential learning opportunities to Xavier student interested in a future in politics and public policy. The Fellowship Program is a student-run group advised by the Center for the Study of the American Dream and Dr. Mack Mariani from XU's Political Science Department. The Fellows decide the issues they want to address and the activities they want to organize. Fellows are required to blog about their internship and work experiences, dreams for the future, and interesting political and policy issues. Ten to fifteen Sophomores and Juniors are accepted into the Fellowship each school year. Applications are available in March.
