Dear Colleague,

I'm pleased to inform you of this fall's virtual information sessions about the Pardee RAND Graduate School's Ph.D. in Policy Analysis.

In these informative webinars, prospective students will learn about our interdisciplinary curriculum, how they will gain practical experience as members of RAND's research teams, our fellowship program that covers tuition costs, the PRGS application process, and graduates' career placements. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters in real time.
