Four special awards are available each semester to CMC participants in the Washington Program. The Margaret Martin Brock Internship Award and the Claremont McKenna Internship Award each provide two students a stipend. The selection process occurs at interviews and the award recipients receive the stipend through the program office after arrival in Washington. Award recipients are required to contribute to the Washington Program blog during the semester in Washington.
Students who have an interest in public service and governmental studies with the promise for a future career in public policy will be considered for the Dreier Roundtable Scholar Award. This award covers $3,000 in living expenses.
