Seven Harvard graduate students are among the 14 local graduate students who will spend the summer working in key state and local agencies as Rappaport Public Policy Fellows or Radcliffe/Rappaport Doctoral Policy Fellows. In addition, two Harvard Law School students will spend the summer in a parallel program for a dozen law students.
Now in its 11th year, the Rappaport Public Policy Fellowship is a unique program that gives talented young graduate students from throughout Greater Boston the opportunity to help public officials address key problems and, in doing so, to learn more about how public policy is created and implemented. The fellowship is funded and administered by Harvard’s Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, which strives to improve the governance of the region by strengthening connections between scholars, students, officials, and civic leaders.
The nine Harvard students who will be Rappaport Fellows are Ali Alhassani, Danielle Cerny, Felicia Cote, Kia Davis, Dan Futrell, Jessica Goldberg, Zachary Hughes, Jessica Simes, and Nicole Simon.
