This portion of the IIPP fellowship is jointly funded by IIPP and participating graduate schools. The IIPP provides up to $15,000 in matching funds to Fellows attending an Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) graduate school. As partners in the IIPP effort, APSIA institutions provide matching fellowship support as it is available. Click here to visit the APSIA website.
