The Master of Public Affairs Program offers scholarships to new students on a competitive basis. These Program Scholarships, which are limited in number, vary in amount and cover part of tuition costs. They are awarded according to academic achievement and academic potential. All applicants to the program, both U.S. and international students, are considered for these scholarships when applications are reviewed. There is no separate application for this type of financial assistance. Applicants will be notified of a scholarship award in their admission letter from the Master of Public Affairs Program.


There is an internship component in the Public Affairs Program. Whether internships are paid or unpaid is determined by the type of internship, and the external organizations and companies that offer them.
