Public Policy and International Affairs (PPIA) Junior Summer Institute
NCA Learning Series 2023-2024
Tuesday, September 19th @ 12:30PM in Swift 708.
The Public Policy and International Affairs Program (PPIA) is a not-for-profit organization that has been supporting efforts to increase diversity in graduate studies in public policy and international affairs, and public service for over 40 years. The PPIA Junior Summer Institute (JSI) Fellowship Program is a rigorous academic graduate-level preparation program for undergraduate juniors committed to public service careers. The program was started to address the lack of diversity across the spectrum of professional public service, including government, nonprofits, public policy institutions, and international organizations. The purpose of the JSI Fellowship is to prepare students to obtain a Master’s or a joint degree in public policy, public administration, international affairs, or a related field.
NCA Assistant Director Michele McDonald will discuss award details and how to craft a successful application.
Eligibility: Juniors committed to pursuing a Master’s Degree in public policy and/or international affairs at one of the PPIA Consortium graduate schools are eligible to apply; session open to all
