Martin School

The UK Martin School has launched a new undergraduate degree in public policy designed to prepare students the knowledge and skills to be prepared for wide range of careers in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors — equipping them to make lasting contributions to organizations, communities, and the broader world.

Graduate program alumni share how their studies at the Martin School had a direct impact on their career,


“Getting my masters at the Martin School gave me exposure to the work that occurs in government that is important, such as auditing, accounting, and forecasting. The experience added to the breadth and depth of my knowledge, all while interacting with some amazing fellow students and members of the faculty.” Shaun McKiernan, 2019


"The Martin School experience imparted me with an appreciation for interdisciplinary discourse and collaboration, as well as a desire for continuous learning and individual development." Jeana Dunlap, 2000


Your gift today to the Martin School Scholarship Fund will ensure we can continue providing funds for undergraduate and graduate degree students, who learn today and change the world tomorrow.
