Dubin Graduate Fellowship for International Students at Harvard Kennedy School in USA
Dubin Fellows are entering master's degree students at Harvard Kennedy School who have demonstrated strong character, academic excellence, the ability to thrive and lead in the face of adversity, and a commitment to making a transformative impact on the communities they serve.
Award decisions will be primarily merit-based but with a consideration of financial need as determined by the HKS Student Financial Services. Two-year degree program students will receive funding for both academic years, as well as support for unpaid summer internships, contingent upon the successful completion of year one. Active participation in the cocurricular program is a requirement of all fellows for the duration of their award. This opportunity is open to domestic and international students entering any of Harvard Kennedy School's master's degree programs.
The TOEFL® test is a popular option for students to meet the English-language requirements for scholarships.
Fellows are eligible for a stipend up to $5000 to support unpaid summer internships or professional development.
