2018-19 PLEN Scholarship Common Application
The Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN) sponsors need-based financial aid for outstanding students interested in attending public policy seminars. PLEN scholarships will cover all or a portion of students’ program, registration, and housing fees associated with attending the seminar. Students awarded any level of financial aid will be responsible for funding their own transportation, meals, and any remaining dues for program, registration, and housing fees not covered by the financial aid award. Preference will be given to currently enrolled undergraduate women, but current graduate students and recent graduates are welcome to apply. Students successful in securing a scholarship will be required to contribute a blog post on their experiences to The Plenary, and we hope that students will remain engaged with PLEN after their seminar.

Please submit all application materials through this form including:
- Personal Information
- Resume
- FAFSA Student Aid Report (or letter from your financial aid office)
- 2 essays

You must also ask a professor, supervisor, or mentor to submit a letter of recommendation via email. More information is on the next page of this form.
