Princeton Students to Support Federal Government as 2021 Scholars in the Nation’s Service

January 20th, 2021

Twelve Princeton students have been selected to join the Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative (SINSI), which funds graduate fellowships and undergraduate internships within the U.S. federal government. The 2021 SINSI cohorts are announced as the initiative marks its 15th year at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.

The four young men and eight women hail from 10 states and represent seven academic areas of study at Princeton. They join a community that has grown to nearly 100 current SINSI students and alumni working and studying across the U.S. and around the world.

Established in 2006, SINSI encourages, supports, and prepares high-achieving students to pursue careers in both internationally and domestically focused federal agencies. The initiative aims to provide students with the professional skills needed to succeed in the public policy arena.

Four students were selected for the SINSI graduate program, which comprises a two-year Master in Public Affairs with a full scholarship for tuition and living expenses at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, and two-year paid fellowship rotations with executive branch departments or agencies. Eight students were selected for the SINSI internship program, which awards fully funded, 8- to 10-week summer internships.

“We continue to be impressed by the extraordinary field of candidates who are eager to pursue service in the federal government,” said SINSI Co-Directors Rick Barton and Kit Lunney. “This year, we had candidates from a range of concentrations who expressed an interest in every part of the executive branch. We are delighted to see this enthusiasm as the SINSI program enters its 15th year.”
