Christopher Carr, a junior international relations, history and political science major at William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., is one of 30 students accepted to attend the Public Policy and International Affairs Junior Summer Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Penn., this summer. Carr is a resident of Belton, Mo.

The Public Policy and International Affairs program helps young adults achieve an advanced degree and ultimately become involved in public service careers. PPIA’s outreach program focuses on students who are underrepresented in leadership positions in government, nonprofits, international organizations and other institutional settings. This focus stems from a core belief that citizens are best served by public managers, policy makers and community leaders who represent diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

PPIA is a fellowship program that provides student training and financial support for graduate school and facilitates ongoing professional development. A consortium of the top public and international affairs graduate programs in the nation, the program seeks to educate and inspire young people from all backgrounds about public service.

PPIA Junior Summer Institute participants receive full tuition to attend the summer program, plus a minimum $1,000 stipend. Participants can also qualify for significant financial awards to attend graduate school at consortium schools.

At William Jewell, Carr serves as president of the UNITY Student organization, which facilitates communication among diverse groups within the campus community. He is also a member of the Diversity Committee, Student Senate and Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.
