The application for 2019 PPIA Junior Summer Institute Application is now open and due on November 1, 2018! The application can be found online at

The goal of the PPIA Fellowship Program is to help prepare to pursue Masters’ or joint degree, typically in public policy, public administration, international affairs or a related field. The organization does this through the intensive study provided by participation in a Junior Summer Institute (JSI), through partnerships with universities across the country, and through an alumni network that provides opportunities to connect with nearly 4000 individuals who share the same interest in public service.

PPIA seeks out high-potential undergraduate students 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.

Benefits include a summer stipend, room and board, travel assistance, and financial support for graduate school if they attend one of the Graduate School Consortium programs.
