The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) announced it will fund 23 students through experiential learning projects this summer. The students, selected as Summer Fellows in Innovation, HKS Indonesia Student Research Grantees, and Vietnam Program Interns, will collectively receive $106,000 in support to defray research, travel, and living costs. “The Ash Center is committed to supporting students throughout their time at HKS and best equipping them with the tools to succeed in the world of practice upon graduation,” said Tony Saich, director of the center. “These summer immersive experiences are an important component of the HKS curriculum, and allow students to actively apply the theory, ideas, and scholarship they have learned in the classroom while gaining real-world career experience.” For a list of the grantees.
