The need for talented and committed public servants is great. The challenges we face at home and abroad require a new generation of policy innovators with excellent analytical skills, a deep understanding of substantive policy issues, and a wealth of experience.

The goal of SINSI is to set outstanding individuals on the path toward public service careers in the U.S. government, focusing on both domestic policy and international affairs, through academic training that is integrated with work experience in federal agencies.

We are committed to preparing the very best to take on current and future challenges and achieve positive change through creative policy.

Careers in the federal government are not for everyone. There are many fields and career choices that allow the opportunity to affect policy; working for the federal government provides the opportunity to make policy.

For those committed to public service — those who wish to make a difference, to shape fundamental policy direction and change — the federal government provides unparalleled opportunities for smart, dedicated, and highly motivated young people.
