Brandl Scholars

Shelley Brandl with the 2018 Brandl Scholars.

The John Brandl Scholars program celebrates Saint John's alumnus John E. Brandl and his lifelong commitment to mentorship and scholarship in higher education, public policy, and politics.

The endowment funds summer internships in public policy and leadership development activities such as conferences and trainings. These internships will range from local to international policy arenas, reflecting Dr. Brandl's diverse career and CSB/SJU's commitment to ethical leadership and the common good.

Brandl Scholars receive $5,000 summer stipends to support summer internships anywhere in the world, and are offered select invitations for McCarthy Center events and mini-grants to cover travel or other expenses related to civic or scholarly engagement. Students will work full-time for approximately 10 weeks depending on the needs of their internship site. Students may elect to earn credits but will have to pay for these and will be assessed on an individual basis. Graduating seniors are not eligible.
