CPL supports students and learners around the world through our student fellowships and co-curricular programs, as well as offering opportunities for students to lead events and conferences.

Experiential and applied learning opportunities supplement curricular offerings that equip our graduates with professional and moral underpinnings for careers across a range of public leadership roles.


Student fellowship programs stand at the heart of the Center for Public Leadership’s mission to develop principled, effective public leaders capable of solving the world’s most pressing problems.


The Public Leadership Co-Curricular Program focuses on developing the capacities for principled and effective public leadership, leaning on reflective, interactive, and experiential methods on campus and in the field.


CPL provides funding support opportunities for HKS students engaging in the practice of leadership and hands on experiential learning through student-led events and conferences.
