Columbia University’s International Fellows Program (IFP) is now accepting applications from continuing Columbia Law students for the 2013-2014 academic year. Applicants are invited to attend an IFP information session on Thursday, March 14 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm in the International Affairs Building room 402B. Professor Sestanovich and program assistants Tabitha Snowbarger and Bob Fitchette will be present to give a brief overview of the Program and answer questions.

The IFP is a two-semester seminar open to students of all graduate-degree programs at Columbia University. The diverse perspectives and professional  backgrounds that fellows bring to the Program enrich their year-long common enterprise.

All fellows receive a stipend and study a curriculum with two goals –¬† to examine the origins of the current international order, in which the United States has for decades played the leading role, and to look ahead to the new world that will eventually take its place, dominated
by a larger number of actors, new problems, and approaches to problem-solving that have yet to be defined. Weekly meetings of the International Fellows Program are supplemented by study trips to Washington, D.C. and the United Nations, where fellows have extraordinary access to senior policymakers, diplomats, legislators, journalists, and leaders of nongovernmental organizations.

The deadline for non-SIPA students to apply to the IFP for the 2013-14 school year is April 1, 2013. More information and the IFP application are available at http://www.sipa.columbia.edu/academics/ifp/.
