SCiPP Peer Advising Survey
The Students of Color in Public Policy (SCiPP) is dedicated to increasing racial and ethnic diversity within the student community. To achieve this goal, SCiPP recruits current GSPP students to serve as Peer Advisors to guide prospective applicants through the MPP application process.

Peer Advisors provide feedback on final drafts of the Policy Statement of Purpose (PSP), give advice on the application process, and answer general questions about GSPP. We gladly provide our services to ALL who are interested and highly encourage individuals from underrepresented backgrounds to reach out to our team.

Once you complete this survey, please send your PSP to as a word document. Please save the document as "FullName_PSP.doc" (e.g. StephenCurry_PSP.doc). Include in the subject line of your email "SCiPP Peer Advising: FirstName_LastName"

We will accept PSP essays for review through Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 11:59 pm PST. You can find more information about deadlines and procedures here:

We look forward to working with you and wish you the best of luck on your graduate school applications!
