Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College Public Policy Scholarship

Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III College – YP4 Scholarship is a great opportunity for YP4 alumni pursuing graduate school. Since 2011, Heinz College awards this scholarship to incoming students in the Master of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM) program who were YP4 Fellows. The scholarship is awarded at the time of admission (no separate application is necessary), with the student receiving $6,000 or more per semester. To be considered, applicants should indicate their involvement with YP4 on the application for admission.

Heinz College offers a one-year track and a traditional two-year track in Pittsburgh, in addition to offering a two-year track split between Pittsburgh and Washington, DC. To learn more about Heinz College, please contact David Eber, Director of Admissions.

For those interested in applying for admission to the Class of 2016, please see below for information on information sessions held by CMU. Note that, as YP4 Fellows and alumni, you are eligible for a travel stipend to visit campus.
