The Political Engagement Project (PEP) is a collaboration between the Hart Leadership Program and POLIS: Center for Politics. PEP is designed to inspire, cultivate, and prepare future leaders in democracy and provide them pathways to meaningful participation, contributing to more diverse and inclusive political representation at all levels in the United States. PEP is open to all Duke undergraduates in their junior year who are interested in political leadership, broadly defined. However, the program has a special interest in supporting students from communities who have historically been disenfranchised from or underrepresented in formal political power. As PEP Fellows, students will participate in unique leadership development opportunities, including taking a politically-engaged class during Spring semester of their junior year, attending monthly cohort dinners, and receiving $3,000 in funding to support either a summer internship or honors thesis work. You can watch the PEP 2023 info session below to learn more, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
