Student Scholars

The school is internationally recognized for its excellence, and a key reason for our growing distinction is our ability to attract the best graduate students from across the globe.  

Dean's Fellows

IR/PS students receive recognition for their achievements in academics, leadership, citizenship, and regional involvement through nomination for the Dean's Fellows program.

Robertson Fellows

The Robertson Fellows Program awards full financial support through a generous pledge from the Robertson Fund for Government (RFFG) to cover expenses for outstanding students to complete their master's degrees at IR/PS. Fellows are students who demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language pledge to work for the federal government for at least three of the first seven years after graduation.

Sylff Fellows
