Public Policy and International Affairs Junior Summer Institutes

Open to US Citizens & non-US Citizens

Public Policy and International Affairs Junior Summer Institutes (PPIA-JSI)

PPIA Junior Summer Institutes are intensive seven-week programs that focus 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 program was started to address the lack of diversity across the spectrum of professional public service, including government, nonprofits, public policy institutions, and international organizations.


Deadline: November 15, 2020
