The Director’s Award is awarded to the top essays submitted each year, with the selections based on participation during the program and the written policy proposal. The honor of completion “with distinction” is awarded to all other students who submit a satisfactory Policy Proposal Assignment. Winners of the Director’s Award are invited to attend a Hoover Institution board meeting and will receive a monetary award.
** Disclaimer: The winning proposals do not reflect the views of the Hoover Institution, Hoover Institution fellows, Stanford University, or the Hoover Institution Summer Policy Boot Camp program directors. The award is based on intellectual merit, as judged by the Hoover Institution Summer Policy Boot Camp program directors.
