Fall 2022 Recruitment

Join our team!

Thank you for your interest in applying to the Global Policy Institute. We are excited to announce that our application for Fall 2022 intake is now open. You may access the application here.

How to apply

In your application you will have the choice of joining either our Editorial team or our Programming team. Only fill out the sections of the application for the team(s) you are applying for.

Editorial fellows focus on maintaining our foreign affairs web blog with updated analysis, op-eds and face-offs on pressing international matters. The topics of your articles will be up to you, but we are looking for fellows who not only write unique pieces, but are also passionate about what they are writing.

Programming fellows will plan GPIs biweekly events that pertain to current events and global politics and reach out to interesting speakers from the university and the professional world to speak at your events. Programming fellows will also join the PBL team to help prepare for the Think-a-Thon, an annual case study competition that we host in the spring semester where teams of students work together to tackle a global challenge. As part of the PBL team you will help the PBL Leads plan for and execute the event including event logistics, marketing and hosting events leading up to the competition.

Important dates

The Application is due on Friday September 9 at 11:59 PM. Please note that GPI only recruits once a year to ensure a smooth on-boarding process for our new fellows.
