Michigan State University's Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR) and the Master of Public Policy Program are now offering one competitive fellowship that provides research work opportunities and a full, two-year scholarship toward completion of a Master’s Degree in Public Policy. 

The fellowships will be focused on research and writing on Michigan policy issues. Mid-career applicants who have worked in Michigan government or the policymaking community are especially encouraged to apply.

Fellows will work 20 hours/week at IPPSR on research assistantships during their studies, receiving full pay and health benefits along with tuition and fees (thereby obtaining a Master’s Degree at no cost).

Fellows will help apply research findings to Michigan public policy issues and compile information for policymakers and civic education efforts. Fellows will also be involved in event organizing and online publishing. They will also be full student participants in coursework and research and engagement opportunities available through MSU's Master of Public Policy program, a joint venture of the MSU Departments of Political Science and Economics.

To apply for the fellowship, supply the normal application for admission and indicate an interest by 05/01/17. For more information or to learn about the experiences of current fellows, please email IPPSR Director Matt Grossmann at grossm63 at msu.edu. Candidates considered for the fellowships will be emailed requests for further information and information about time for potential personal interviews.
