Capping off an intensive week-long study and discussion of the core principles and tools of public policy, students were invited to apply their knowledge by researching and developing a policy proposal. Following the principles of Hoover scholarship, the proposals emphasize a specific recommendation using facts, data, and well-constructed arguments. The papers summarize the significance of the new policy and the expected result.
After review of each submission, we recognized three participants with the Hoover Institution Summer Policy Boot Camp Director’s Award based on their outstanding work. The winning proposals demonstrate particular creativity in addressing complex policy issues.
We are proud to include these proposals written by the following winners of the 2018 Hoover Institution Summer Policy Boot Camp Director’s Award.
