Rappaport 10th Anniversary

RESEARCH CENTERS | A reception marking the Rappaport fellowship’s 10th anniversary was held on Wednesday, October 13, at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln. The policy fellowship, which is administered by Harvard’s Rappaport Institute For Greater Boston, gives a dozen graduate students from the Boston area the opportunity to work with senior officials in state and local government for the summer. A parallel program, overseen by Suffolk University’s Rappaport Center for Law and Public Service, provides a similar opportunity for law school students from throughout the region. Over the past 10 years, 245 students — about half of them from Harvard — have received the fellowships. Recipients have used them to work with a variety of officials, including Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.
