Bright Leaders, Bright Futures: Start the Spark | Public Policy Conference for Chicago Undergrads

Text Box:
Hello from Hyde Park!

Dear Colleague:

I am hoping you can help me spread the word about an upcoming conference for Chicagoland-area undergraduates interested in careers in public policy or public affairs.

“Bright Leaders, Bright Futures: Start the Spark! Conference on Policy Leadership,” hosted by the University of Chicago and the Harris School of Public Policy, will take place on June 19-21, 2014.

The conference will introduce participants to general graduate school study and, more specifically, to the disciplines of public policy, public administration, international affairs and/or public service. The program has been designed for current college freshman and sophomores, particularly those from underserved and under-represented communities, who attend school and/or live in the Chicagoland area.

Students attending the conference will hear from distinguished speakers; students and UChicago alumni; participate in workshops; and learn about careers in public leadership. The conference will be held on the UChicago campus. Housing and food will be covered for all participants.

The deadline to apply is April 30, 2014, but space is limited so we encourage any students interested in the program to apply as soon as possible. Additional information and the brief application can be found HERE.

Please contact me at or 773.551.7604 with any questions or for additional information. More information about conference speakers and workshops will be posted to the website as it becomes available.

Please feel free to share this information with all your contacts and networks.
