Applications for the Fall 2023 Practitioner Fellow Program are now closed.

In the spirit of facilitating knowledge exchange, strengthening community ties, and building an ethos of practice into our professional graduate programs, SPPGA’s Practitioner Fellowship program hosts several practitioners in full-time residence for periods of four to eight months, with start dates each year in September and January.

Appointed as an Adjunct Professor, Practitioner Fellows are distinguished practitioners with 10+ years of leadership experience in public policy, international development, global affairs and/or government, across a variety of issue areas and sectors.

Fellows pursue student and community engagement, research and collaboration, as well as teaching and learning, and return to the workplace with new expertise to inform their professional practice.
