Part 1 of 2: Application to The International Fellows Program

Thank you for your interest in the International Fellows Program at SIPA. The International Fellows Program (IFP) is a course of graduate study that offers a greater understanding of the evolution of international affairs and teaches the tools of international problem solving.

The International Fellows Program is a two-semester seminar open to students from all graduate degree programs at Columbia University. It comprises fellows from a diverse variety of professional backgrounds, intellectual perspectives, and nationalities. Fellows have a strong interest in American foreign policy and plan to apply lessons of the Program to their careers, whether in government, private practice, or education.
