2018 Pipeline Initiative
Sponsored by the Students of Color in Public Policy, the Pipeline Initiative aims to help prospective students navigate the MPP/MPA application process and to provide the student perspective on being a member of the Ford School community. Please fill out this form if you'd like to participate in the 2018 program. We particularly welcome inquiries from students of color to help increase the diversity in our programs.


How does it work?
This outreach program pairs a prospective student, like yourself, with a current graduate student who will act as a mentor and provide guidance on the application process. For example, mentors can read through your personal statement and provide feedback on your resume. Current students will be paired with applicants based on a variety of factors, i.e. policy interests, undergraduate institution, career goals, etc.


What’s the timeframe?
Mentors will be provided to prospective students during two submission rounds. All application materials must be received by the application deadlines to be paired with a mentor on the corresponding Match Date. We will do our best to match prospective students who submit their application after the application date.

Round 1: November 2, 2018
Round 2: November 30, 2018


FRIENDLY REMINDER: If you'd like feedback on your personal statement, please submit a draft (as a word document) to amricha@umich.edu with the subject line: “Pipeline Personal Statement: FullName”. Please note that personal statements are not required to participate in the Pipeline Initiative. You can also submit your statement to your assigned mentor after the matching process.


If you have any questions, please email SCPP’s Pipeline Chair, Audrey Richardson, at amricha@umich.edu.
