Initiated by a group of Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management alumni, the new need-based financial aid packages will be granted to Master of Public Policy admitted students who come from not-for-profit organizations, social organizations and enterprises.

Each year, the financial aid packages of 50-100% tuition fees will be granted to two or three admitted students, starting from the Master of Public Policy Class of 2024 (MPP2024). The financial aid program will run in five years.

The packages aim to support admitted students of both Policy Analysis (PA) and Leadership & Management (LM) concentrations of the Master of Public Policy program. The students must be full-time workers in community development institutions, social enterprises, social organizations, not-for-profit organizations, and non-governmental organizations.

According to three founders of the fund, the financial aid packages target certain students who cannot afford to pay tuition fees to study at FSPPM.

We hope this initiative will support candidates who are passionate about serving the community and improving their personal capacity to contribute more and go further in their community service path. We acknowledge that some admitted students have given up on their dream of pursuing Master of Public Policy at FSPPM because of financial constraints,” one of the fund’s founders, who is a MPP4 alumna, shares.

The founders assume the financial aid packages partially satisfy other FSPPM alumni’s desires to give back to the school. They hope that the initiative will also pave the way for philanthropic efforts from Fulbright students who receive financial aid from philanthropists while studying at Fulbright and wish to pay it forward after becoming successful in their career after graduation.
