Who Should Apply?

We encourage applications from juniors and seniors attending colleges and universities in DC, DE, MD, VA, and WV, who are majoring in and have demonstrated academic achievement in political science or a similar field of study, and hope to apply to a doctoral program in the next two years. The Institute is especially interested in students from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds who are likely to contribute to political science meeting the diverse challenges of the 21st century. 

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions for some additional thoughts and suggestions about the PS-PSI and applying to join us.
