Training the leaders... of tomorrow.


The Johns Hopkins Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) sponsors two programs -- the International Fellows in Urban Studies and the International Fellows in Philanthropy -- that bring overseas experts each year to the Johns Hopkins University for a semester or year of research and writing. Each international program sponsors a yearly conference in an international city. Over 300 international experts are alumni of these two international fellows programs.
