The PPIA Deadline is November 1!

Are you currently in the junior year of your undergrad, and interested in pursuing a career/higher degree in international affairs?  If so, you should consider applying for the PPIA Fellowship!

From the PPIA website:

"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 Institutes (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 program is a great way to get a feel for what it's like to be a graduate student in international affairs, and gives its alums an excellent academic preparation to move forward in the field.  Additionally, PPIA fellows receive guaranteed partial fellowships from PPIA partner schools (subject to admission to those schools, of course)--one of which is Johns Hopkins SAIS.

But don't delay--the application deadline for PPIA is on November 1.  For more information and to apply, check out the PPIA website here.

Thanks for reading!
