The Institute of Politics is committed to continuing the long-standing tradition of supporting Harvard College students in their pursuit of politics and public service. In recognition of the changes the COVID-19 epidemic has brought for students, we are excited to announce the IOP Fall 2020 Stipend Program.
This program will continue the financial support traditionally offered over the summer months and allow flexibility during these unprecedented times. We are working with our public service partners from across the College, the University, and beyond campus to ensure we can provide students the resources to continue to gain experiences in public service. Our goal is to provide students with a substantive term-time experience in public service while ensuring the health and safety of all program participants.
