Five New Institutions Join PPIA's Graduate School Consortium

PPIA’s Graduate School Consortium comprises over 60 public policy and international affairs programs from across the county. These institutions share PPIA’s commitment to increasing diversity and fostering inclusion in public service and support our Junior Summer Institute (JSI) Fellows in their pursuit of graduate education.

We are excited to announce that the following institutions have recently joined our graduate consortium:

The School of Planning and Public Affairs at the University of Iowa


The Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University


The Master of Global Affairs Program at Rice University


The Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison



The Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh 


In the upcoming weeks, we will be featuring the offerings of our new member schools individually on PPIA’s blog and social media. To explore the full list of our graduate consortium members, visit our database.

Alumni of the PPIA JSI who apply for admission to member schools are guaranteed application fee waivers and, if accepted, are guaranteed a minimum, one-time financial award of $5,000 from the school. Most programs can provide financial assistance well above this level (including 100% tuition scholarships and generous stipend support).

PPIA welcomes opportunities to expand its consortium. Schools interested in joining can learn more here and contact the National Office at
