In April 2022, the Luksic Scholars Foundation became the coordinating entity of the Scholarships, renewing the agreement, now under the name “The Luksic Scholarship at Sciences Po.” Source.

what scholars say

Having a multidisciplinary curriculum and classmates from around the world will definitely enrich the experience of working towards a Master in Public Policy. Both factors broaden one’s outlook and help you see things from different perspectives, which is extremely important when it comes to drafting and implementing public policies.
