Once selected, Walsh Scholars join a community of alumni, professors, and professionals that encourages mentorship, reflection, and public leadership. Throughout the 2018 calendar year, Walsh Scholars attend professional development training, engage with public leaders in small groups, complete a public service internship, and parlay the summer experience into post-graduate opportunities. Students also receive institutional and financial support to secure a substantive, relevant, and professional-level internship in the field of public service for the summer of 2018. Internships with for-profit corporations are out-of-scope for the Walsh Scholars Initiative.
