The M.P.A Graduate Fellowship builds and enhances your professional skills and helps defray tuition costs.

Fellowships offer you the opportunity to enrich your academic study and professional development, linking graduate study with earning and work experience.

The competitive Master of Public Affairs Graduate Fellowship (GF) provides partial tuition remission in exchange for work in a public affairs related organization, on or off-campus, (public, private, NPO). 

Here’s how it works:

The Graduate Fellowship covers $10,000 of graduate tuition (excluding fees), while the graduate student works 12-15 hours per week in a public affairs related organization.  

The fellow is mentored by the director to support learning and to strengthen professional and leadership skills.  The graduate fellow is required to be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits per semester to be eligible. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated leadership, academic, and communication skills. 

Graduate Fellowships

Students apply once they have been admitted into the graduate program. The Fellowship positions have been filled for the 2018-2019 academic year.
