Women in Government

Women in Government Grants

Through the generosity of the Class of 1962 and the O’Meara family, students may apply for funding to support work with a female elected official at the local, state, or national level. The student must be working directly with a woman involved in any aspect of state or local government in the United States. The grant enables the student to take an unpaid internship and learn more about state or local government and the important role that women play in the governmental process. Students may not use the funding for work on election campaigns.
