Each February, the Harvard Kennedy School hosts the Public Policy and Leadership Conference which is meant to inspire talented, driven, and diverse first- and second-year undergraduate students to pursue careers in public service. The next conference will take place on February 9-12, 2017.

This opportunity is open to undocumented students with DACA.

This information must be included/referenced in applicants’ résumés and personal statements.
