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. Over the course of a year, fellows will work with policy experts, complete an intensive policy curriculum and participate in national networking opportunities. The fellowship will enable participants to positively contribute to the development of policies and practices that support afterschool and summer learning opportunities for children across the country.
