International Academic Opportunities: Introducing the Luksic Scholarships for a Master’s in Public Service with applications opening soon

The London School of Economics (LSE), the University of Oxford, and Sciences Po, are set to begin their admission processes for various academic programs later this year. In collaboration with these institutions, the Luksic Scholars Foundation is offering full scholarships to enable Chileans to embark on these international academic experiences. 

Public service, and all of those dedicated to it, play a crucial role in shaping a better society. It is within this sector that a myriad of social challenges are tackled, leading to transformations that a country needs in order to enhance the quality of life for its citizens. With the rapidly changing landscape of today’s social and global challenges, there is an ever-growing emphasis on strengthening the training of professionals and leaders within this realm. 

In light of this, and as a response to these challenges, the Luksic Scholars Foundation has developed the Luksic Scholarships in Public Service, allowing Chilean professionals to pursue an international master’s degree with a special emphasis in this field. These opportunities are created in collaboration with globally recognized universities such as LSE, the University of Oxford, and Sciences Po.

“Training dedicated professionals committed to public service is vital for our society. We facilitate access to academic opportunities in this field because we believe it contributes to the development of leaders and experts ready to address the challenges of the 21st century,” stated Isabella Luksic, Executive Director of the Luksic Scholars Foundation.

Similarly, Trinidad García, Program Development Lead at the Luksic Scholars Foundation, emphasized that the design of Luksic Scholarships in Public Service aims to broaden access so more Chileans can tap into this life-changing experience.  “Pursuing a master’s degree abroad is a transformative opportunity that broadens horizons and fosters professional growth. Participants can immerse themselves in a new academic and social culture, expand their knowledge, build networks, and learn to tackle challenges in their respective fields from fresh and innovative perspectives,” Trinidad noted.

In addition, all Luksic Scholarship recipients have to the opportunity to join the Luksic Scholars Community, a global network of over 1,000 Scholars who have participated in various programs supported by the Foundation since 2000. This Community offers exclusive benefits and opportunities.

In the upcoming months, these three academic institutions offering master’s degrees in Public Service will begin their admission processes. It is important to note that applications for the programs and the Luksic Scholarships are managed and allocated exsluviely by each academic institution.
