LittleTwo posted a topic in Decisions, DecisionsI was accepted to the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey for International Education Management with a 50% scholarship. Does anyone know much about the program? I've heard good things about the school but I haven't been able to find out much about the program because it's so small. Is it widely known in the field? What are their connections and networking opportunities like? I'd like to work in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural affairs in the future. Because they tend to offer so little funding, I'm worried that my classmates won't be in the top tier. Is it worth waiting to hear from NYU Steinhardt and Columbia TC?
turkish coffee posted a topic in Government AffairsHello, would appreciate thoughts regarding graduate school decisions/comments from people in the same boat. Interested in the Middle East, development, and human rights. I have State Dept. experience and did some volunteer NGO work in Lebanon. Accepted to: Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey - International Policy and Development MA program ($14k fellowship over 2 years) George Washington University - Middle East Studies MA program, concentration in International Affairs and Development ($5k/year fellowship) - waiting on another fellowship that would fully fund 1st year. Fletcher at Tufts University - MALD program ($24k fellowship over 2 years) SAIS at Johns Hopkins University - MA program, no funding still waiting on a decision from the Ford School at University of Michigan (MPP program). SAIS was my #1 because I wanted to strengthen my economic/quant skills.. took an online econ course to prepare and started to reconsider haha, and the $0 funding doesn't help. Fletcher seems up my alley with their human rights rep, and they gave me the most funding, but they're also more expensive than GWU and don't have the DC advantage. Michigan would probably be my top choice if I get accepted because of in-state tuition. Their MPP is ranked 3rd after Berkely and HKS, and they offer several international-oriented courses so I'd still walk away with the skills and expertise that I want. Middlebury is great but can't compare with the other schools, especially considering I will still have to take out significant loans to go there, so it's probably out of the running. I prefer to be abroad post-graduation, and am also considering going the PhD route at some point in the future, so I'd like to be somewhere where I could do an MA thesis. and with that I welcome any thoughts/advice
I recently got my acceptance into my first program Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey! They have great funding for Peace Corps and other service organization vets. I have no such background, just non-profit work. They offered me $5,000 per semester or $20,000 total for all four semesters. Is that typical at MIIS? Has anyone had success asking for more in the past?
