Cassie Frankel, a second-year student at the La Follette School of Public Affairs received a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship for the 2017–18 academic year. Frankel will use the fellowship to study Arabic through UW–Madison’s Center for European Studies.

Graduating students at the La Follette School of Public Affairs addressed household financial management, educational approaches for disadvantaged children, economic development strategies, and other challenging issues through the school’s capstone courses.

La Follette School students have numerous opportunities to apply their coursework as project assistants (PAs) on and off campus. Employers gain highly skilled employees, and students use their training in real-world work environments.

La Follette School student Drew Buys attended the Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference in Washington, D.C., along with 800 experts and officials from more than 45 countries and international organizations during spring break.

Gillian Tett, the U.S. Managing Editor of the Financial Times, and Peter Hall, the Krupp Foundation Professor of European Studies at Harvard University, will provide keynote presentations during “Europe in Crisis: The Future of the EU and Trans-Atlantic Relations” at the University of Wisconsin–Madison on Thursday, April 6.

La Follette courses provided me with an extremely solid foundation in applied research methods, which has allowed me to more quickly pursue my current research than might otherwise have been possible.

Safe & Sound operates at the intersection of policy and practice, and it’s an exciting opportunity to see how the research plays out in community work on a daily basis.

I’ve always been interested in international affairs, development, politics, and governance. La Follette’s MIPA is great with all of them.
