The program offers people of color and women an opportunity to earn an MPA through a combination of internships and full-time study that will prepare them for leadership positions in government and nonprofit organizations.
Each fellow is awarded full-tuition and stipend to the MPA program, and is reimbursed for travel/relocation, books, and health insurance costs.
The full-time MPA program consists of an intensive combination of internships and on-campus study beginning in June and ending a year later in mid-August. Fellows must complete 12 credits in the summer, 21 credits during the fall and spring (while working full-time with an assigned mentor), and nine credits the following summer.
