Introducing the CPU Civic Scholars Program!
CPU launched our Civic Scholars Program last fall. 24 high school students from across New York City. The program was a success, and we are excited to continue in Spring 2021. CPU Civic Scholars are motivated high school students who are passionate about civics, government, activism, and issues affecting their community. Civic Scholars participate in a six-week civics education program facilitated by our CPU Civic Fellows, and featuring guest speakers from the Columbia University faculty, New York City government, and other organizations. The Spring 2021 program runs from March 3rd to April 14th, and meets virtually every Wednesday, excluding March 31st, from 6 PM-7:30PM ET. Sign-ups are due by Saturday, February 27th, at 11:59PM.

NOTE: We have had a slight delay processing applications, and students will be notified of their acceptance on March 1st, 2021.
