MPA student Monique Gibbs received a public policy summer fellowship from the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, a university-wide entity housed at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government that strives to improve governance by strengthening connections between the region’s scholars, students, and civic leaders.
Every year, 12 graduate students are selected by an esteemed panel of academics and industry professionals to work full-time in a state or local government agency. Fellows work for a period of 10 weeks with their chosen agency on a range of policy and public management projects.
Gibbs will work with the Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development on various projects, including the JP/Rox Plan and Imagine Boston 2030.
“I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to build both my professional experience and network in a city I have grown to love.”
