About the IWP-UNC Chapel Hill Partnership
In Spring of 2017, IWP signed a Memorandum of Understanding with University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The partnership creates an early assurance program for qualified UNC students from any major, provides additional financial benefits for accepted students, and offers undergraduate students at UNC to tour IWP annually and learn about its graduate programs. Additionally, the two universities are planning a lecture exchange.
IWP is pleased to have already welcomed several UNC students to campus, such as UNC PWAD student and former IWP intern Ana Delgado, and Philip Otto, currently enrolled in the M.A. program in Statecraft and National Security.
