The Woodrow Wilson School offers a one-year Master in Public Policy (MPP) degree for mid-career professionals who are rising leaders in international and domestic public policy. The School also offers a Master in Public Affairs (MPA). The Wilson School aims to enable graduate students to earn a graduate degree without incurring debt, thereby making it more feasible to pursue careers of public service in the public and nonprofit sectors. Unless applicants receive outside scholarships from governmental or other funding agencies, the School will offer each candidate a full scholarship for tuition and a need-based stipend to cover living expenses. Stipends are offered on the basis of each individual and family.
