Conducting Research on Cutting-Edge Public Policy Issues
Whether studying best practices for green-building policies or
researching community-based strategies that towns and cities may employ
to give residents convenient, safe, everyday opportunities for
physical activity, the Institute for Public Administration's (IPA) Undergraduate Public Administration Fellows
are helping to build knowledge and educate others on critical issues
that will make a difference in the lives of citizens in Delaware and
across the globe.
Selected through a competitive application process, Fellows work with IPA's faculty and staff members on universal issues such as land use, water resources,
education, transportation, and healthcare policy. Fellows typically
work ten hours each week, earning an hourly wage.
Students with backgrounds in political science, economics, geography, environmental issues, engineering, public administration, business administration, leadership, sociology, history, or education will find the Public Administration Fellows experience particularly relevant to their long-range professional goals.
Public Service and Innovation
Program Manager Lisa Moreland says, “Through their research, undergraduate Public Administration Fellows see first-hand how innovative ideas can be realized and contribute to public service.”
