Partner organizations

At the Ford School, we recruit students who have demonstrated potential to be leaders and agents of change in a field that is evolving at unprecedented speed. We seek students who have a team-oriented approach to problem solving, who are capable of dealing with ambiguity and change, and who have a strong commitment to service.

We partner with a number of high profile organizations to help us connect with students with these characteristics who are interested in public policy. Among these partners are Teach for America, AmeriCorps, the Public Policy and International Affairs Program (PPIA), the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, Govern for America, Pickering Fellows, Rangel Scholars, and Payne Scholars, and the U.S. Peace Corps. We also offer application fee waivers for service members and alumni for these partners and others.
