LEDA Policy Corps Application
Through a competitive application process, a “Corps” (~15) of LEDA Scholars (Cohorts 1-11) will be selected and trained on the federal policy process and key higher education topics. Corps members will have opportunities to regularly engage with policymakers and be invited to represent LEDA and their communities at education policy events throughout the year. The LEDA Policy Corps will also help inform LEDA’s stance on issues that impact higher education. For those Scholars looking to build their expertise in federal education policy, network with experts and policy makers in the field, and develop their advocacy and engagement skills, we invite you to apply to be a member of the LEDA Policy Corps. Applications are due May 30, 2018.

If you have any questions about the LEDA Policy Corps or the application process, you can reach out to Amber Briggs at amberbriggs@ledascholars.org.
