Public Policy New Voices Fellowship Program 2024
The Public Policy New Voices (PPNV) Program is a collaboration among leading public policy graduate schools, corporate public policy teams, and some of the most innovative global strategic advisory firms in the nation who are committed to addressing the systemic challenges experienced by early-career, underrepresented people of color in the public policy field.
PPNV convenes graduate students of color to contribute to the creation of a global policy network while addressing and tackling the structural challenges that prevent full representation and participation in policy-focused careers.

- Provide the Building Block skills necessary to promote oneself in the field of public policy.
- Grow friendly Network and Industry Exposure for each fellow to maximize during and after the program.
- Facilitate a strong Intra-Cohort Community that elevates the active-fellow experience and fosters long-term alumni engagement.
