Alexa Posny Internship in Educational Policy Studies

Dr. Alexa Posny has spent her career as a public servant and leader in the fields of Special Education and Educational Policy. In recognition of the importance of practical experience in the field, as well as the value of networking and building collegial relationships for early career success, she has created this award to increase opportunity and affordability for graduate students taking advantage of internships that will serve their career goals.
