Are You Into International Affairs & Policy?! Check Out These Scholarships!

Are you excited about pursuing a career in International Affairs and Policy?

The National Scholarships Office is hosting a presentation on several outstanding scholarship programs (listed below) for sophomores, juniors, and seniors with strong interests in pursuing careers in international affairs – these programs focus on students with financial need, as well as students from groups historically underrepresented in international affairs leadership roles in government, nonprofits, international organizations and other institutional settings. They provide generous scholarships for graduate study, prestigious summer study programs, internships, and more. US citizenship or permanent residency is required to apply for these programs.

Our speakers will be Patricia Scroggs, Director of the Rangel International Affairs Program, and Erin Mann, Director of the Public Policy and International Affairs Program. Mohammad Zia, a UMD senior who has participated in both the Rangel Summer Enrichment Program and the PPIA Junior Fellows Program will share his experiences as well.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 AT 4 PM IN THE MARYLAND ROOM, LOWER LEVEL OF MARIE MOUNT HALL – Refreshments will be served
Please RSVP to scholarships@umd.edu if you plan to attend! If you are interested but cannot attend, write to us at the same address.
