PPIA Fellowship Program

 

Description

For nearly 35 years, PPIA has been supporting students in their pursuit of graduate degrees in public policy and international affairs. The PPIA Fellowship begins with the completion of a Junior Summer Institute (JSI). JSI is an intensive seven-week summer program that focuses on preparing students for graduate programs in public and international affairs and careers as policy professionals, public administrators and other leadership roles in public service. The JSI curriculum includes economics, statistics, domestic/international policy issues and leadership topics, all designed to sharpen the students' quantitative, analytic and communication skills. Extracurricular activities are also included as well. These skills are vital for admission into the top graduate programs in public and international affairs. Completion of a JSI is required for receiving graduate school benefits. Applicants must be committed to completing a Masters Degree in public and/or international affairs at one of the PPIA Consortium graduate schools; must demonstrate an interest in pursuing a professional career associated with public service such as government, nonprofits, humanitarian and international organizations and other related programs; and must be interested in contributing to the diversity of perspectives present in the PPIA Fellowship Program. Economic need is given consideration during the review of applications.
