This award requires university nomination or interview and cannot be applied to directly. Students must work with the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships and meet university deadlines.
Each year, UB nominates one student to become a Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC) Fellow. These fellows are fully funded to participate in the program, during which they attend a four-day leadership conference in Washington, D.C., participate in monthly webinars and develop a research paper eligible for publication and awards.
Since 1970, CSPC fellows have traveled to Washington, D.C. to learn about leadership and governance, to share their outstanding research and to explore careers in public service. While attending the conference, the fellows participate in workshops where they present and receive peer feedback on their research projects. The fellows also have the opportunity to engage with policy experts, government officials and leaders in the legislative process.
The 2023-2024 application is now closed. Applications for 2024-2025 will open in April 2024.
A UB faculty committee will review the nominee’s application and determine if the student will be endorsed to the scholarship program. Applicants will be notified of their selection status by June 30.
