Alumni Referral Program

The Alumni Referral Program, initiated in 2006, involves alumni in the School’s ongoing recruitment efforts.

The Admissions Office welcomes referrals from alumni of any of our five programs. We know that you often meet talented individuals who may be ideal candidates for one (or more!) of our degree programs. We will be happy to waive the application fee for any applicant referred by an SP2 alumnus/a. In order to do so, we will need an applicant’s name and email address. To refer a prospective student, please contact:

Our talented alumni work for social justice around the world. We hope that you will have the opportunity to meet many of our alumni during your graduate school search. If you meet an SP2 alumnus/a, be sure to ask them to refer you through the Alumni Referral Program. Once they do so, we will be happy to provide you with an application fee waiver.
