Graduate Admissions


Students are at the heart of the Elliott School mission. As we educate and train the next generation of international leaders, we also strive to provide opportunities for scholarship and knowledge-building within the field. Our location in the center of Washington, D.C., offers incomparable benefits, and our powerful network of connections spans both the academic and policy community. Our students enhance their professional education through jobs and internships in the public, private and nonprofit sectors as they equip themselves to make the world a better place.

I always knew that I could learn new things about the industry through working and learning on my own, but the knowledge I gained through interacting with active practitioners inside and outside the classroom prepared me for the challenges and experiences I face daily in my professional life.
