New Fellowship Supports Public Policy Students

A new Commonwealth Policy Fellowship program has been established to support graduate students in public policy, with the goal of making the program more accessible to future policymakers.

The program will award grants of $10,000 each to 10 incoming students in the one-year Master of Public Policy program at the School of Public Policy (SPP). The fellowship will recognize students for academic excellence and demonstrated leadership potential.

“The MPP provides an intensive preparation for students interested in public service careers,” said Alasdair Roberts, SPP director. “These fellowships make the one-year program even more affordable.”

For in-state students, the fellowship grant will reduce total tuition costs by almost half; for out-of-state students, it will reduce the cost by more than a quarter.

Priority for the Commonwealth Policy Fellowships will be given to students who apply by the March 15 deadline. More information can be found here.
