Are You Making the Most of Your Summer?

Summer isn’t just about going to the beach, fireworks, and cookouts!

If you’re considering going to graduate school, the application deadlines might seem like they are far in the future.  But those six months go by fast, and application materials will be due before you know it!
Make the most of your summer by getting a head start on the application process, and that begins with doing your research.  Learn more about the top graduate schools in international affairs by attending a Summerfest grad school reception with admissions representatives and alumni from Johns Hopkins SAIS, Columbia SIPA, the Tufts Fletcher School, the Georgetown School of Foreign Service, and the Princeton Woodrow Wilson School.
At Summerfest, you can learn how an education at a top international affairs school can help you advance in your career, what kind of professional skills you’ll gain in a graduate program, and what the application process entails.  You can speak with alumni of the five schools about their personal experience, or you can speak with an admissions Officer one-on-one to ask questions about the application process.
Our first Summerfest reception will be held in Washington, DC on Thursday, June 25.  For more information and to register, click here.
We will also be hosting additional Summerfest receptions in July in New York City andWashington, DC.  Additional opportunities to learn more about SAIS and our degree programs can be found on our Recruiting Calendar.  
We hope to see you at Summerfest!
Thanks for reading!

Not in DC or NYC? We’re also hosting virtual information sessions for our various degree programs every month this summer.  Upcoming virtual sessions include:
