All about the International Fellows Program

I first applied to the International Fellows Program when I applied to SIPA, but was not accepted. I tried again for my second year, and the second time was definitely a lucky charm. Read More →

Upcoming fellowship deadlines

Here are a few upcoming fellowship deadlines for October-November 2015. As always, I encourage you to review other sites, including our External Funding Database, which includes 256 scholarship, fellowship and grant opportunities. All of those listed in this database were curated by the SIPA Office of Admissions & Financial Aid, and are open to applicants pursing a graduate degree in public policy and/or international affairs.

Applying to SIPA? Consider the 2016 PPIA Fellowship, too

About the Fellowship
The PPIA program prepares undergraduates to be competitive candidates for top degree programs in the fields of public policy, public administration or international affairs through participation in a Junior Summer Institute (JSI).

JSI is an intensive, 7-week, academic program during the summer at one of these host campuses:

  • The Ford School – University of Michigan
  • The Goldman School – UC Berkeley
  • Heinz College – Carnegie Mellon University
  • Woodrow Wilson School – Princeton University

Benefits of Participation

  • Full tuition at a PPIA Junior Summer Institute.
  • Eligibility to receive assistance with travel expenses.
  • A stipend of up to $1,500 (funding determined by each JSI).
  • University housing with a meal plan.
  • Books and related course materials at your JSI.
  • Each JSI may offer additional benefits, such as GRE preparation, at their discretion. Please check with each JSI about any additional benefits.
  • Minimum of a one-time $5,000 scholarship at a PPIA graduate school if admitted for a Master’s degree or select PhD programs. PPIA Fellows often receive financial offers above and beyond this minimum from their graduate program.
  • Fee waiver when applying to programs that are members of the PPIA Graduate School Consortium. (If you’re awarded the PPIA Fellowship, SIPA will waive your application fee when you apply.)

Eligible candidates are current undergrads who will be completing their B.A. between December 2016 and August 2017. The deadline to apply is November 1, 2015. Learn more.

A few scholarship opportunities

Over the next several weeks, I’ll occasionally post upcoming scholarship deadlines for anyone interested in studying public policy and international affairs. Our financial aid officers dug through SIPA’s external funding database, and found a few notable scholarships with upcoming deadlines; which I’m sharing with you today. But since the curated list is composed of more than 250 award opportunities, don’t forget to regularly check the database for yourself so you’re well aware of what’s to come. Read More →
