ISPS Fellowships


ISPS supports three fellowships for Yale students. The fellowships are designed to prepare graduate and undergraduate students from across the disciplines to contribute to domestic policy discussions in the United States.

ISPS Graduate Policy Fellows

The Yale ISPS Policy Fellows Program supports Yale graduate and professional students conducting research on U.S. domestic policy.

ISPS Policy Fellows attend weekly breakfast workshops, receive training in skills such as op-ed and policy memo writing, media appearances, and blogging; attend high level conferences; present their research to and receive feedback from ISPS-affiliated faculty and other graduate fellows; contribute to the ISPS blog; and are eligible to receive research support for policy-relevant projects they develop in conjunction with ISPS.

The Millstone Fellowships in Public Service

The Millstone Fellowship is a program which awards stipends to support summer internships in government through the Partnership for Public Service’s Future Leaders in Public Service program. This program provides general training for government placement, which are well matched for those Millstone fellows seeking federal jobs over the summer. In addition to a placement in a government internship, the Future Leaders program offers professional development, mentorship, and networking opportunities.
