Your semester as a Global Politics Fellow will include several additional opportunties and benefits.
Students will participate in lunch seminars with current and former government leaders, non-profit organizers and elected officials. The speakers will share their insight from their years of experience and answer your questions about their work and career fields.
Fellows may be invited to special events hosted by your internship sites, the university and friends of the program. These events are a great opportunity for students to network and see how D.C. works outside the office.
Students will receive a transportation stipend to help cover the cost of their transportation to and from the Arlington campus and to their internship site.
The scholarship is offered in memory of Rachel Gradia, a George Mason student who was selected as a Global Politics Fellow for the fall 2014 term, but passed away before being able to participate in the program. Her family have generously offered this scholarship as way of honoring her memory and Rachel's enthusiasm for her time at George Mason. This scholarship is only available for a student's fall semester as a Global Politics Fellow. This scholarship is a one-time grant of $4700.00 to be applied to the student's tuition costs for their term as a Fellow. Only students selected for a fall GPF cohort will receive scholarship application information.
