SUNY students—present your research and win $500.

The Future Leaders in Policy (FLIP) Competition gives State University of New York (SUNY) undergraduate and graduate students a chance to share their research with New York State leaders, publish with the Rockefeller Institute of Government, and win $500. SUNY students are encouraged to submit applications to participate in the 2022 FLIP competition (full application instructions available here). If accepted, students will develop their in-progress or completed research into presentations that they will deliver to a panel of judges from the New York State Legislature, Executive Chamber, and state agencies. Judges will select winners and those students will be invited to adapt their research and presentations for written publication by the Rockefeller Institute. Upon publication approval of their final research, researchers/teams will be awarded a prize of $500.
