The School of Public Policy at UCL invites applications for the Pentland Scholarship to support one individual undertaking its Global EMPA programme run jointly with NYU Wagner. The Global EMPA programme is intended to equip talented professionals, who have at least seven years of management-related experience, to develop their analytical skills and managerial competence so that they are able to provide public policy leadership in conditions of contemporary governance.

The Global EMPA is a full time one-year programme. Students will spend the first semester at NYU Wagner in New York, the spring term at UCL in London and the summer in locations across the globe working on a client-based Capstone project.

The scholarship will be awarded to individuals from Africa, Asia-Pacific or Latin America and will support outstanding young people who have at least seven years of management-related experience, and they can demonstrate a capacity to benefit from the programme, a clear sense in which they will be able to contribute to public service and who lack the means to finance their own study.

The Pentland Scholarship represents a unique partnership which enables talented young professionals from the Global South to take advantage of this innovative one year programme. The successful candidate will benefit from additional access to an internship with Pentland, membership of a global community of Pentland Scholars and UCL/NYU scholars and alumni.

The scholarship meets the full cost of tuition and fees for the programme and will provide the successful individual with a full stipend.

Further information about the programme can be found at http://wagner.nyu.edu/executivempa/globalexec.
