Friday, July 29 – Sunday, July 31
Washington, DC

Engage with peers and policy leaders
Learn how to craft a career with impact
Compete with other students to send policy recommendations to the 45TH President

This summer you decided to come to Washington, DC — because you want to experience the nation’s capital, and learn how to make a difference. Or, you already live here and have decided you want to take advantage of what Washington has to offer.

At Carnegie Mellon’s Heinz College Washington DC we have a weekend you may be interested in attending. In partnership with The Public Policy & International Affairs Program and NASPAA, we are hosting an interactive conference from Friday, the 29th to Sunday the 31st  where attendees will hear speakers and learn from experts on public policy issues that include technology & society, government gridlock, climate change, and education.

At the 2016 Conference for Diversity & Impact we will select fifty students to:

  • Attend engaging public policy discussions
  • Learn about the skills you need to create real opportunity for your career
  • Participate in a team competition to develop policy recommendations for the 45th President

Three of the five teams will take home cash prizes (ranging from $500 – $2,000 per team) and will be included in a video message to the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees, who will have just been nominated at the Democratic and Republican national conventions.

Who Should Apply?

Undergraduate students living in the DC Metro area this summer or recent graduates not enrolled in graduate school. Whether you live in DC full time or will only be in town for the summer!
