Students Selected for 2017 Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative
Ten students at Princeton University have been selected to the 2017 cohort of the Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative (SINSI).
Established in 2006, SINSI is designed to encourage, support and prepare the nation’s top students to pursue careers in the U.S. federal government, in both international and domestic agencies. Through rigorous academic training integrated with work experience, the goal of the highly competitive scholarship program is to provide students with the language and workplace skills needed to succeed in the public policy arena.
This year, for the first time, two groups of students have been admitted to the program. Seniors and first-year Master in Public Affairs students were able to apply for the graduate scholarship, with four graduate scholars admitted from the applicant pool. In addition, all freshmen, sophomores and juniors were invited to apply for new SINSI internships; six students were admitted. Prior to the 2017 cohort, a total of five students were selected annually for SINSI during their junior year. Full Story Here.
