Palm Beach Atlantic University President William M.B. Fleming Jr. has announced the establishment of a fellows program supported by The LeMieux Center for Public Policy.
Through The LeMieux Center Fellows Program, two upper-level undergraduate students will pursue an independent study of current or emerging public policy issues concerning individual freedoms, values, rights, religious liberties and institutions in the United States.
To be considered for the program, students will submit a research proposal, résumé and a letter from a faculty mentor supporting the project. The fellows receive a stipend to cover the cost of the independent study course as well as expenses, such as travel, incurred during the course up to $2,500 as well as ongoing guidance for their research project from former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux.
"The LeMieux Center Fellows Program will provide an extraordinary opportunity to tackle an issue of great public importance with myself and a dedicated member of the PBA faculty,” Sen. LeMieux said. “I am very excited about this opportunity to work closely with the first two LeMieux Center Fellows."
Applications are being accepted immediately with the first two LeMieux Center Fellows selected in November.
