The Keough School of Global Affairs will welcome 38 Master of Global Affairs students to the University of Notre Dame in August. The inaugural class — recently selected from more than 300 applicants — includes students from Afghanistan, Chile, China, Colombia, Egypt, Iran, Kenya, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, the Philippines, Tajikistan, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Ukraine, the United States, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.
All students in the inaugural class will receive fellowships thanks to a number of generous families, as well as foundation support and funding from institutes and the University more widely, said Scott Appleby, the Marilyn Keough Dean of the Keough School.
“We could not be more thrilled to meet the incoming students,” Appleby said, “or more grateful to all those who are making it possible to attract, support and send out into the world the next generation of high-impact global leaders and agents of change.”
