Wanted by the JU PPI: World Changers! Priority deadline April 15

The JU Public Policy Institute (JU PPI) is now accepting applications for the fall 2013 semester, with a priority deadline of April 15.
The Institute is offering the first MPP degree in Florida, as well as the first MPP-JD (juris doctor), MPP-MBA (master in business administration) and MPP/MA-MS/MSC (marine science) joint degree programs in the state, according to JU PPI Director Rick Mullaney. The MPP-JD is being offered in conjunction with Florida Coastal School of Law.
Prospective students can visit ju.edu/ppi to submit an application online, or they can print application forms and mail them if they desire. The deadline for receiving priority in the application process is April 15, although submissions will be accepted after that date. No more than 20 students will be admitted.
The JU PPI also recently announced creation of two major scholarship funds for JU Master in Public Policy students.
Applicants to the JU PPI must have an undergraduate degree, submit three letters of recommendation and a resume, write an essay and submit a test score from the GRE, GMAT or LSAT. Applications will be considered for overall quality; a specific GPA or test score is not required. To see all entrance requirements, visit ju.edu/ppi.
The JU MPP degree is a two-year, 48-credit program, and students are guaranteed an internship after their first year at one of a number of public, private and non-profit organizations and offices, including the Governor’s Office, Congressional Offices, Mayor’s Office, Jacksonville Port Authority, Jacksonville Transportation Authority, JEA, The Community Foundation, CSX and more. MPP graduates work in the public, private and non-profit sectors.
