Academic Partners

RFG Fellowships fund master’s degrees in international affairs, policy, public administration and related fields at select partner universities that are among the top ranked across the nation. All of the foundation's partner schools are members of APSIA (Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs).

Progress is only possible if the United States and its allies work together.
