School of Public Service Hands-on learning programs
The School of Public Service believes that one of the best ways to serve the State of Idaho, region, nation and global communities is to actually do something in addition to just learning from books, lectures, etc. Hand-on learning is a great way for our students to gain real world experience to prepare them for future careers in public service.
Frank Church Scholars
The Frank Church Institute's mission is to promote civic engagement and understanding of public policy with foreign relations. The institute is non-partisan, but seeks to provide a forum for open and informed discussion characterized by civility, tolerance, and compromise. The Frank Church Scholars program is open to degree-seeking Boise State University students. Awards may be for scholarships on campus, in Washington, D.C. or abroad.
The Andrus Center for Public Policy promotes the wise use of our environmental resources and public lands, proper funding of education for our children and the cultivation of leadership from all segments of our society. The Andrus Scholars Program supports internships with federal or state agencies, nonprofit entities, or other mission-centered business enterprises that provide Boise State Environmental Studies students with meaningful work experience that will enhance learning and skill development, assist in post-graduation job placement, and ultimately support development of the environmental and public lands stewards of tomorrow.
