Prize Recognizes Undergraduates Working to Improve the Future of Children and Youth

Each year the KIDS FIRST: David L. Kirp Prize awards $2,500 to one or more UC Berkeley undergraduates who have developed innovative strategies to increase opportunities for children and youth or who has demonstrated a commitment to improving the future of children and youth.

Eligibility

The prize is open to UC Berkeley undergraduate students from all majors who are registered during fall semester 2019.

Application and Deadline

To apply, students must submit an application form, 1000 word essay, resume or CV, and two letters of support. The application deadline is October 28, 2019. To download an application form and learn more visit the ISSI website.

A faculty member at the Goldman School of Public Policy, UC Berkeley, since 1971, David L. Kirp is currently a professor of the Graduate School, a member of the National Academy of Education, a contributing writer to the New York Times and a senior scholar at the Learning Policy Institute. In his seventeen books and hundreds of articles, he has mainly focused on education and youth policy. His 2011 book, Kids First: Five Big Ideas for Transforming the Lives of Children, makes a powerful argument for building systems of support that reach from cradle to college and career. His most recent book is The College Dropout Scandal.

The prize reflects Professor Kirp’s long professional track record and deep commitment to creating a better future for children and youth. “I hope the prize will incite interest and provoke creativity among talented UC Berkeley undergraduates. It is hard to imagine a more important topic than shepherding the next generation of kids to a successful future.”

Applications for the KIDS FIRST: David L. Kirp Prize are due on October 28, 2019. For more information or to download an application, visit http://issi.berkeley.edu/kids-first.

Each year the Cal-in-Sacramento program sends approximately 30 Cal students to intern in public service in California’s capital. Cal-in-Sacramento is the University of California’s largest — and one of the nation’s most prestigious — campus-based public service internship programs.

Cal-in-Sacramento Fellows work for eight weeks in Sacramento internships in the offices of Senate and Assembly members, the governor’s office, state agencies, or nonprofit groups. The program provides free housing for students and a free light-rail pass so students can travel to and from work.

Interested in Cal-in-Sac? Join us for an information session on either October 8 at 5:00 pm or October 14 at 6:00 pm in the IGS Library. (The same information will be presented at both sessions.) RSVP on our Facebook.
