IDPP Fellowship Application Opens to Pursue MPP at UM INPUMA
The IDPP is now accepting applications for IDPP Fellowships to pursue a Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree with a focus on disability policy at the University of Malaya – International Institute for Public Policy and Management (INPUMA). The MPP program will begin on 1 September 2014 with an IDPP two-week residency for incoming students in August 2014. Students will live on the University of Malaya campus in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and take face-to-face classes with INPUMA and IDPP faculty from across ASEAN and around the world.
The IDPP expects to offer up to fifteen fellowships funded by The Nippon Foundation (TNF) with preference given to persons from the ASEAN region who are blind or visually impaired; deaf or hard of hearing; and mobility impaired. IDPP Fellowship applications will be accepted through 20 May 2014.
The generous IDPP Fellowships are expected to support the in-person participation by students admitted into the INPUMA MPP program. IDPP Fellowships, contingent upon renewal funding from The Nippon Foundation, are anticipated to provide for tuition and fees; housing costs and a living stipend; books and course materials; technology equipment; support services such as a personal assistant, sign language interpreters, and/or assistive technologies; and costs to participate in the IDPP two-week residency.
The MPP program, launched at INPUMA in 2005, is a comprehensive postgraduate program that integrates public policy formulation, analysis, evaluation and management. The program curriculum is interdisciplinary, practical and international. It is designed for individuals who want to pursue a career in the public, private and nonprofit sectors at the local, regional, national and international levels.
Elective courses will be taught by IDPP and INPUMA faculty who are renowned experts in disability and public policy from across ASEAN and around the world. Within courses such as Policy Analysis Exercise, Research Project, and Capstone Project, students will select disability-related topics to create a specialization in disability policy.
