Organisation

Georgetown University
Description

The Global Human Development Program (GHD) at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service is excited to announce a full tuition scholarship for a master’s-level student from sub-Saharan Africa, made possible through the generous support of the William and Catherine McGurn Family. The Global Human Development Program is a two year, full-time master's degree that encompasses an innovative skills-based curriculum with built-in opportunities for experiential learning. The curriculum covers core courses including the economics of development, international political economy, program design and implementation, monitoring and evaluation, quantitative and qualitative methodologies, finance and budgeting, and management.
Who Can Apply

Students applying must have a Bachelor's degree. Have completed courses in introductory macro- and microeconomics and statistics (must be completed before enrollment in August, not necessarily before applying). Must be able to function effectively in English and one other language (students must pass an oral proficiency exam before graduation, implying that they will have a reasonable command of one foreign language before entering the program). Several years of experience living, studying, and working abroad is strongly recommended. Completion of either the GRE (preferred) or GMAT exam, taken in time to submit the scores by the application deadline.
