Scholars are given the opportunity to work with faculty mentors and local business professionals, and participate in internship programs at organizations such at Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman.
The Sondheim Public Affairs Scholars Program honors the work of Walter Sondheim, a Baltimore business leader and education advocate. Students explore and work to address the critical social issues of our cities and communities through community service opportunities, government, non-profit, and law internships, and original research projects. Students also have the opportunity to attend lectures and other events to discuss policy problems and challenges with leaders and organizations in the social sciences.
