Interested in the nexus of science and public policy? Want to be a policy-maker, not just a policy-watcher? Consider applying to the Woodrow Wilson School's Scholars In the Nation's Service Initiative, which is now accepting applications from the class of 2014. An information session for BSE students will be held on Tuesday, October 9, at 4:30 p.m. with Ambassador Barbara Bodine, SINSI Director, and current Scholars, Hannah Safford '13 and Shannon Brink '09 MPA *13.
About the Program
The Woodrow Wilson School's Scholars In the Nation's Service Initiative (SINSI) is a fully-funded, four-year government fellowship and MPA program designed to prepare students for a career in federal service. Scholars spend the summer after their junior year in a SINSI-funded federal government internship and, upon graduation, enter the Woodrow Wilson School's two-year Master in Public Affairs (MPA) program.
The Master's program provides a full scholarship for tuition and living expenses and a summer of intensive study in a language relevant to their academic work and career goals. The core element of the program is a two-year SINSI-supported fellowship with the federal government between the first and second year of the MPA program. The application deadline is Thursday, November 1, 2012.
