IWP is pleased to announce that it has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding with Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Drake prides itself on being one of the finest universities in the Midwest for experiential learning.

As a part of this new partnership, Drake University students are now eligible for early admission if they apply on or after April 30th of their third year of college. Drake University alumni who attend IWP’s in-person M.A. programs will also receive a guaranteed $2,200 scholarship per semester. There will also be a tuition reduction for Drake alumni who are enrolled in IWP’s distance programs from $650 to $500 per credit hour.

This partnership also includes priority consideration for Drake students in IWP’s internship program. Drake students will have the opportunity for a private group visit to IWP’s campus for a lecture with IWP faculty.

Marty Martin, President of Drake University, commented: “I greatly appreciate IWP extending these benefits to our students and graduates. The chance to learn from and be mentored by IWP subject matter experts in Washington, D.C. will be a highly valued opportunity for any number of Drake students in the years ahead.”

Chris Glass, the Senior Vice President for Professional Affiliations at The Institute of World Politics said,
“All of us here at the Institute look forward to forging an enduring partnership with Drake, one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the Midwest with exceptional leadership, staff, and faculty. Building together, we will offer the benefits and resources of larger institutions combined with the advantages of intimate class sizes and close personal relationships for all our students.”
