2017 Junior Summer Institute Fellows Update

This application cycle has been one of the most competitive to date as we received nearly 600 applications from students all across the United States. We are proud to announce the acceptance of over 100 new PPIA Fellows who will be attending a JSI at one of our host institutions: Carnegie Mellon University, UC Berkeley, Princeton University, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. Please join us in congratulating this new cohort of highly competitive students who are bound to become leaders in their communities both here in the US and abroad.

While you may not have been selected as a Fellow, we strongly encourage you to be persistent in your effort to pursue a career in public service. There are still many ways for you to become involved with PPIA and in your respective communities. We encourage you to keep in touch and attend one of our events such as the Public Service Weekends, our Public Service Expo in Washington D.C (July 14th), and various events hosted throughout the year. We and the wider PPIA network are always available to support you as you craft a path towards a career in public policy and international affairs.

For more information on how to get involved visit our Public Service Weekends page.

We also have a Public Service Expo event in Washington, DC where¬†representatives from the nation’s best graduate schools in public policy and international affairs will be available to give advice on preparing your application and to answer any questions you may have.

Visit our PPIA Facebook page to stay in touch with not only our events but the different events hosted by our network of partners, including NASPAA and APSIA, two nationally recognized organizations dedicated to supporting students pursuing a graduate degree in public policy and international affairs.

For any additional questions on our events or the JSI application, please e-mail us at ppia.office@ppiaprogram.org.
