Beau Scott: The Panetta Institute for Public Policy

Beau Scott is representing Santa Clara University as one of 25 fellows in the Panetta Institute's 2017 Congressional Internship Program. He is working in the House of Representatives for Congressman Jimmy Panetta, who serves the 20th District of California. Beau has had the opportunity to work with Congressional staffers on legislative research and has attended briefings and hearings on a variety of topics from ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) funding to Title II net neutrality rules.

According to Beau, "The Panetta Institute for Public Policy provides an unmatched opportunity to experience some of the greatest aspects of our country. I owe the Institute a thank you for its one-of-a-kind seminars that feature speakers from Tom Daschle to Dan Quayle." The Panetta Institute's internship program provides a unique insider's view of Washington for students like Beau planning a career in public service.
