Become a Culver Fellow

2016 seniors w Sen Culver

Each year, a select group of incoming students with a passion for politics and public service will be awarded a renewable annual scholarship of $2,000 — in addition to all other merit- and need-based financial aid awarded by Simpson College.

Public service may include contributions made within the context of volunteer work, elected office, government service, and civic engagement. In addition to the scholarship, Culver Fellows are the student leaders of the John C. Culver Public Policy Center who are involved in all aspects of the center’s work on campus and in the broader community.

Applications for the fall 2019 incoming class are due by February 1, 2019.
