Lincoln Institute 75 Fellowship for Ethics and Equity in Public Administration
The internationally known and respected Lincoln Institute of Land Policy has joined with Claremont Lincoln University to create a distinctive Master in Public Administration degree that engages students with real-world cases and cross-sector analysis of current social issues. Now the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy has committed $100,000 to fund the Lincoln Institute 75 Fellowship for Ethics and Equity in Public Administration.
The fellowship is designed specifically for underrepresented working professionals seeking to earn a graduate degree. Ideal candidates are in entry- and mid-level roles in the public and non-profit sectors, or in mission-oriented roles in the private sector. The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and CLU strongly encourage candidates from groups that are underrepresented with respect to race, ethnicity, gender identity, disabled status, and veteran status to apply. Those chosen as Lincoln Institute 75 Fellows will receive up to $10,000 toward tuition in the CLU Master in Public Administration.

Up to five recipients each year will receive full tuition, health insurance, and a $10,000 annual stipend during their full course of study at Harvard Kennedy School.
The fellowship is open to all admitted degree program students at Harvard Kennedy School. Domestic students from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply, as well as students interested in business, medicine, law, education, and public health.
