The University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy is taking applications for the inaugural class of the Obama Foundation Scholars.

The program, which offers a full scholarship toward a Master of Arts in International Development and Policy (MA-IDP) at Harris Public Policy, is available to people from around the world who are already making a difference – in civil society, in government, in the private sector, or as entrepreneurs.

Applicants should have:

  • Significant work experience (three years or more) and professional accomplishments with a clear trajectory of increasing impact.
  • A demonstrated record of community service or working for the public good, either through a full-time professional role or significant engagement outside of primary employment.
  • A clear focus on a global challenge or policy issue.
  • A clear commitment to return to and reinvest new skills in the community after the program concludes.
