Gephardt Institute selects next cohort of Civic Scholars

The Gephardt Institute for Public Service at Washington University in St. Louis has selected its next cohort of Civic Scholars.

Twelve sophomores, all in Arts & Sciences, have been chosen for the Class of 2017 group of the program. The program includes both a classic and a study-abroad cohort.

Civic Scholars enroll in two years of academic coursework related to civic leadership and receive mentorship to prepare them for a life dedicated to public service. Additionally, scholars receive a $5,000 grant to carry out a civic project in the summer before their senior year.
