Notes from the Capital

Updates from the 2018 Kinder Scholars

The calendar turning over to June can only mean one thing: Kinder Institute Director of Undergraduate Studies Carli Conklin and Director Justin Dyer are about to board a plane east for the launch of our Kinder Scholars D.C. Summer Program. And once they get back, reports from the students on internships, class, and the quiet (or not-so-quiet) places to reflect they’ve found in D.C. will start pouring in.

We will add each new installment of our “Notes from the Capital” update series to this post once that gets off the ground in mid-June, but for now, click here for a list of the sites across D.C. where students are interning this summer, and click here for a preview of the co-taught “Beltway History & Politics” seminar associated with the program, which will not only explore everything from “Economic Equality” with Professor of History and Black Studies Devin Fergus to “Electing the First Congress” with Professor of Political Science Jay Dow but also feature in- and out-of-town field trips to Antietam, the CIA, Mount Vernon, the Library of Congress, and more.
