ONIF is seeking qualified juniors for the following awards:
The Public Policy & International Affairs (PPIA) Fellowship helps students achieve a Master’s or joint degree, typically in public policy, public administration, international affairs, or a related field. Each year, PPIA seeks out high-potential undergraduate juniors from universities across the country to participate in an intensive seven-week Junior Summer Institute (JSI) before their senior year. During their program, fellows are equipped with the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in graduate school and ultimately, in influential roles serving the public good. Open to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, DACA, and international students.
The Harry S. Truman Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship for eligible students who plan to pursue careers in government or elsewhere in public service. The Foundation has supported Truman Scholars in many fields of study, including agriculture, biology, engineering, technology, medicine, environmental management, economics, education, arts education, government, history, international relations, law, political science, public administration, nonprofit management, public health, and public policy.
Truman Scholars receive up to $30,000 toward a public service-related graduate degree, participate in leadership development activities, and have special opportunities for internships and employment with the federal government. Open to U.S. citizens (or a U.S. nationals).
This info session will familiarize you with both awards, application processes, and best practices for constructing competitive applications.
In addition to college juniors, first and second-year students are also encouraged to attend.
