Hinckley Forums
Hinckley Forums enable students, faculty, and community members to discuss a broad range of political concepts with political experts several times each week during the fall and spring semesters.

The Hinckley Institute of Politics provides more than $720,000 in academic and internship scholarships to University of Utah students. Academic scholarships are offered once an academic year and internship scholarships are awarded to students who are accepted to international and Washington, DC, internships. There are a limited number of local internship scholarships available.

The Campaign Management Minor offers undergraduate students the opportunity to learn the theory and practices that will make them effective leaders of election and advocacy campaigns.
