The Pepperdine School of Public Policy Washington, DC Policy Scholars Program explores topics typically untouched by Washington, DC-based policy studies programs, pushing its participants to better understand the vital interconnection between culture, history, and public policy.

The 2020 program will offer two exclusive full-tuition scholarship, 3-unit graduate-level courses where accepted scholars will learn from top policy academics and practitioners. Each four-week seminar will accommodate only 20 qualified scholars, hosted at Pepperdine’s Washington, DC Foggy Bottom campus with class sessions meeting Tuesday/Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings in June (first session) and July (second session).

Applicants may apply for just one session or both (note: if applying to both sessions, acceptance to one session does not guarantee acceptance to the other; admissions decisions are made separately and independently for each session). Course descriptions can be found below.

Upon completion of the program, scholars will receive an applied religion in public policy certificate of completion (for session one) and/or an applied philosophy in education policy certificate of completion (for session two) from the School of Public Policy, and may use the credits toward future enrollment at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy (or another academic institution).

Deadline to apply for either session is 11:55 PM (PT) on Friday, March 27, 2020.
