2011 PPIA Junior Summer Institutes
Sep 7, 2010 by Dilshan B. Somaweera
The Public Policy and International Affairs national fellowship program is an amazing opportunity for students to learn about the public affairs fields, develop concrete skill sets for graduate school, and meet and network with progressive peers, alums, admissions officers, and organizations. The PPIA Junior Summer Institutes are hosted at various colleges across the country, including UC Berkeley.
PPIA fellows are given full tuition, room, and board for the summer, and are also given a monetary stipend, free GRE preparation, and a minimum fellowship award of $6,000 for use at a graduate program in one of the PPIA consortium schools. Beyond this, the experiences, friendships, and alumni connections one gains through PPIA are invaluable!
The application deadline is *November 1, 2010*. For the application materials and to apply, visit: http://ppiaprogram.org/app/.
