School of International and Public Affairs
For over sixty years, the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) has been dedicated to educating students about the complex forces that shape today’s world. Vital to SIPA’s education are recruiting deserving students, sustaining faculty research, and cultivating policy dialogue. As scholars, SIPA’s faculty, students and alumni work to understand the world. As practitioners, they act to change it.
Make a difference in the lives of students at Columbia and in the field.
100 percent of annual fund gifts are designated for student financial aid. Even as we build endowment through the Campaign, ongoing annual gifts remain critical to our students and their futures.
Contribute to a student's professional development through one of SIPA's internships across the globe.
Internships offer invaluable hands-on experience, but sometimes little or no pay. By supporting travel and other expenses associated with internships, Campaign donors make a wider range of choices available to students. Donors may make a one-time gift or establish a permanent named endowment.
Help fund annual team-based consultancies or workshops integral to the professional education of SIPA's students.
Workshops in our students’ final semester allow them to gain knowledge and practical problem-solving experience while engaging with NGOs, multinational organizations, and private companies. Campaign gifts support expenses connected with the workshops. Donors may make a one-time gift or establish a permanent named endowment.
SIPA Campaign Partial Fellowship
Endow a partial fellowship supporting future generations of experts in international and public affairs.
Thanks to the generosity of the late John Kluge ’37CC, ’88HON, matching funds are available for donors wishing to establish a named endowed partial fellowship. Your gift of $100,000 or more will provide permanent support to graduate students in any field or in a priority field of your choosing.
SIPA Campaign Fellowship
Endow a full fellowship supporting future generations of experts in international and public affairs.
Under a match established by the late John Kluge ’37CC, ’88HON, Campaign donors can establish a full named fellowship endowment for half the usual cost of $1 million. Such endowments provide permanent support for promising graduate students in any field or in a priority field of the donor’s choosing.
Fully endow a professorship in a specific area, enabling SIPA to recognize, recruit, and retain outstanding scholars and practitioners as faculty members.
SIPA welcomes new endowed faculty positions in fields corresponding with each of its six concentrations and a select few other areas. Fully endowed chairs are named for the donor or someone of the donor's choosing.
