Diversity at MSFS

MSFS recognizes the value of diversity in the student body. Normally 25-35% of our U.S. students are from an underrepresented population and 30-40% are non-U.S. citizens. The exchange of viewpoints based on differing backgrounds and experiences is vital to effective training in the field of international affairs. 

The MSFS Program is a participating member of various programs which assist minority students who wish to pursue careers in public and international affairs, including the Association of Professional Schools in International Affairs (APSIA), the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs program and the Public Policy and International Affairs Fellowship Program (PPIA). Students seeking information about diversity in student affairs at Georgetown can contact the Center for Multicultural Equity and Access at (202) 687-4054 or Hoya Circles, a student-led group serving the multicultural graduate student community.

Non-U.S. students have equal access to admission and MSFS scholarships: there are no quotas for specific countries and all nationalities are considered for scholarship.  In the "How to Apply" section you will find guidance on standardized testing for non-native speakers of English, and the "Financial Aid and Expenses" section has links to information specifically for international students.

Information for Students with Disabilities

Georgetown University provides a full range of facilities and services for students with disabilities. If a student with disabilities wishes to discuss possible admission to the program and issues connected with the fulfillment of degree requirements he/she should contact the Academic Resource Center at (202) 687-8354 or
