About this grant

This grant will provide funds for Furman University to operate the White-Riley-Peterson Policy Institute which brings together a diverse group of 15 emerging leaders from the afterschool and education fields to serve as fellows.

Fellows will complete the program able to positively contribute to the development of policies that support afterschool and summer learning opportunities for children across the country.
