HLS Mississippi Delta Project Mississippi Policy Partners Student Application All applications, including this form and a resume, must be submitted via email to Cyd McKenna firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00pm EST on Friday, October 1, 2010. Program Description: The HLS Mississippi Delta Project’s Mississippi Policy Partners will engage Harvard students (HLS and HKS) to work with students from Mississippi’s Tougaloo College and Mississippi legislators in order to prepare them for the start of the 2011 legislative session. The project will involve mandatory travel to Mississippi (expenses paid) for a long weekend in November (November 12-14) in order to present an interdisciplinary training on policymaking and the legislative process to the Tougaloo College students and meet with the legislators. Harvard students will spend fall semester preparing individual modules for this training. Law students will be able to apply the work completed this fall towards Harvard’s pro bono requirement. In addition, law students will have the option of continuing with the project in January and earning independent clinical credit for the winter term. The goal of the program is to bring together students from three schools, practitioners, community members, and legislators to create a platform for sharing innovative ideas and cross-disciplinary exchange. For more information on the project, email Cyd McKenna at email@example.com.
