2018 Kinder Scholars D.C. Summer Program

The Kinder Scholars D.C. Summer Program provides rising juniors and seniors at the University of Missouri with an opportunity to immerse themselves in a course of study on the American constitutional and democratic traditions that uniquely weds theory, history, and practice. Specifically, by combining coursework on the United States’ constitutional history from the colonial period through the modern day with a related, academically-based internship, Kinder Scholars participants will be able to apply classroom knowledge to practical experience in a way that deepens their understanding of both the philosophy and function of democracy in America.

The Kinder Institute offers significant financial assistance to all participants, providing each class of Kinder Scholars with housing as well as a $1,000 stipend to defray other expenses related to studying, working and living in the nation’s capital.

The deadline to apply for the 2018 Kinder Scholars D.C. Summer Program is Friday, October 27, 2017. All students returning to MU in Fall 2018 for their junior or senior year are eligible to participate. Application materials can be found in the link below, and any questions about the process can be directed to Kinder Institute Communications Associate Thomas Kane, KaneTC@missouri.edu.
