Meet Our Students

The International Development Program has approximately 100 students in residence. They are an exceptionally diverse group, representing all regions of the world and speaking more than 40 languages. Many of our students entered the program with previous experience in International Development, and most engage in practice training during the program through internships and research in Washington DC or overseas.
