Oct. 9 NOW Email: 2014 Junior Summer Institutes (JSI)

Daanzho! (Greetings in the Jicarilla Apache language)

This Native Opportunities Weekly (NOW) message shares
information about the Public Policy &
International Affairs Fellowship
(PPIA)!

Founded in 1981, the Public Policy
& International Affairs 
(PPIA) Fellowship Program aims
to promote diversity and leadership in public policy, government, nonprofits,
and international affairs. PPIA 
is now accepting applications for the 2014 Junior Summer Institutes
(JSI).

Each year, PPIA selects undergraduate students in
their junior year to take part in this intensive seven-week fellowship.
Fellows will become equipped with the knowledge and skills they will need to
succeed in graduate school, as well as discover potential and influential
career pathways for the future. Students will study on the campus of one of
the four participating universities: Carnegie Mellon University, University
of California-Berkeley, Princeton University, or University of Michigan. Selected
students will receive
 full tuition for the fellowship, which
covers housing, a meal plan, and books correlated to course material. JSI
participants will also be eligible to receive assistance with travel
expenses, and a stipend of up to $1,500 (funding is determined based on each
JSI location).
