ISPS Fellowships: Policy-Related Skills Development

ISPS-affiliated students are a carefully selected group of thoughtful individuals who are deeply passionate about policy issues. Students have different interests, policy-related experiences, and academic perspectives.

ISPS offers a series of short policy-related skills development sessions to affiliated students to ensure that all students have a base level of knowledge about key aspects of policy work.

Please check our event calendar for more information and room location.
