Is this the year you’re applying to graduate school? Even if it’s not, we recommend you connect with schools that you’re interested in early on. Graduate school applications can be time-consuming to gather all of the pieces for, especially if you’re juggling several applications on top of your personal and professional life. You also want to make sure that the program you apply to is the best fit for your goals.

Columbia SIPA will be participating in the APSIA Online Grad School fair on July 25. Register today to learn more about what you can do with a SIPA graduate degree – our alumni work in everything from international trade policy to counter-terrorism to social impact investing (and much more).

APSIA stands for the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs, a network of schools that demonstrate their excellence in career-focused, graduate-level, international affairs education. APSIA schools generally stress the application of theory to practical uses and are focused on helping students become meaningful agents of change. APSIA has a robust list of relevant Fellowships & Scholarships for those interested in policy and international affair graduate studies.

If you’re in the area, stop by the Summerfest mini graduate fairs coming up this month. SIPA alumni, current students and admissions staff will be here to answer your questions.
