About the EXPO

Why attend?

Learn about the graduate school admissions process!

Attendees of the EXPO receive unparalleled access to decision makers in the admissions process at the nation’s top policy schools. Prospective applicants have an opportunity to ask questions about various policy programs, what makes a strong candidate, and carefully consider which programs align with their interests and careers.

Find careers and internships in public policy and international affairs!

As many graduate programs emphasize career experience as an essential part of a competitive application, the Expo encourages attendees to visit the various employers that offer information about careers and internships in public service.

Be part of a community!

Recognizing the importance of networks, the Expo provides a crucial meeting point for over 200 students each year to exchange of ideas, information, and inspiration. The EXPO also offers students attending PPIA’s 2013 Junior Summer Institutes the opportunity to meet each other and connect with program alumni in Washington, DC.
