WASHINGTON -- March 4, 2008 - The Institute for Responsible Citizenship has selected USC's Jason Price as one of twenty-four young men to participate in its summer leadership program in Washington, DC. He was chosen from hundreds of applicants from universities all over the country to be part of the sixth class of the Institute.

Jason W. Price is a Business and Finance major at the University of Southern California. Although he actively participates in varsity track and field, he manages to find the time to earn excellent grades and mentor underprivileged children through the Joint Educational Product. A member of the Trojan Investing Society, Jason plans to become an entrepreneur.

The Institute for Responsible Citizenship admits twenty-four exceptional minority male students each year for its two-summer program at Georgetown University. During the first summer, students take courses on campus while interning in the DC Metro area. A generous stipend is provided to cover the cost of transportation and food. During the second summer, students work full-time and act as mentors to the twenty-four newly admitted young men. Students live on campus in university housing provided by the Institute during the program. When not at work or in class, students are treated to intimate meetings with high-level government officials, which in past years have included Supreme Court Justices, the Secretary of State, U.S. Senators, U.S. Congressmen, and business leaders.
