Educating a New Generation of Leaders
Sié Center Student Programs
Through its student programs, the Sié Center seeks to prepare a new generation of global leaders, policymakers and scholars by combining a rigorous education in international affairs with skill development in research design, methods and analysis. The theory attained in coursework is applied to practical professional experience, whether as part of an internship program or while conducting research under the guidance of the Center's faculty. During the academic year, students are also invited to attend seminars, conferences, and other special workshops hosted by the Sié Center.
Sié Fellows are a select group of students at the Josef Korbel School who receive a two-year, full-tuition scholarship for graduate study and have the opportunity to work alongside faculty on the ever expanding research efforts at the Sié Center. Read more about the Sié Fellows here.
In partnership with the Aspen Institute, the annual Nathanson Fellowship is awarded to an outstanding second year MA student. Nathanson Fellows design a conference and assist in coordinating the Public Diplomacy Speaker Series. Read more about the Nathanson Fellowship.
Master's degree and doctoral students and alumni who do research with the Sié Center often have opportunities to co-author policy briefs, blog posts, and other publications with our faculty. Learn more about our students' recent publications.
