Next Generation Scholars Program for Undergraduates Interested in Public Policy

The goal of the Next Generation Scholars (NGS) undergraduate program is to provide new research and mentorship opportunities for promising UT undergraduate students interested in careers in international security, law, or civic engagement on a wide range of local, national, and international policy issues.

This one-year program includes two key components: First, students take a 3-credit research training and professional development course in the fall semester, designed to introduce students to policy work, including basic skills in policy research, analysis, and writing. Students are trained on designing research strategies and proposals, conducting policy analysis, writing resumes and statements of purpose, crafting op-eds and blog posts, and planning for the steps in their career development. Second, the program matches each selected student with a research agenda underway by a Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar or RGK Center Faculty Fellow to provide opportunities to directly engage in policy-relevant research and practice skills taught in the fall course.
