Introducing the CPU Civic Scholars Program!
CPU launched our Civic Scholars Program last fall, with 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.
The CPU Civic Scholars program will continue in Fall 2021, with a new and expanded programming, and significant in-person components. Check back here for more details. Our application will open in early Fall 2021.
