FUNDING FOR WOMEN INTERESTED IN POLITICS & PUBLIC SERVICE. The B.A. Rudolph Foundation champions the educational and professional development of women for whom a small amount of support could make a significant difference. Specifically, the Foundation provides financial and professional support to women with summer internships in public service (graduate and undergraduate in the Washington, DC area). The goal of the stipends is to cover living expenses, making it feasible for students to accept unpaid internships. In addition to financial support, the Foundation provides each scholar with 1-2 mentors in her field of interest, professional development workshops, and networking opportunities. The scholarship applications are due by April 11 for undergraduate public service applicants.
