Two students in the School of Public Policy and one incoming School of Law student have won scholarships from the Bryce Harlow Foundation, which awards the grants to graduate students pursuing careers in public affairs, government relations or lobbying and have high academic achievement and leadership skills.

The students are Robert Boik, who is in the Master of Public Policy Program; Sarah Bonner, who is in the Master in International Commerce Program; and Stephanie Johnson, who will be entering the Law School this fall.

All three will work full-time while pursuing their degrees. Boik is assistant to the state education officer, D.C. State Education Office; Bonner is a legislative affairs liaison in the U.S. Department of Commerce International Trade Administration; and Johnson is assistant to the chief of staff, U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means.

The students were among 17 selected from the Washington, D.C., area. Each will receive a $6,000 award and will participate in mentoring relationships with the foundation’s Board of Governors.
