Testimonial: Mansi Rawat (2022 30% Club Scholarship Holder)
"I am immensely honoured for being awarded the 30% Club Scholarship for the Master of Public Policy at UCD in 2022. As an experienced professional in the development sector, this scholarship has allowed me to further my professional aspirations. I believe the UCD MPP program's global exposure will be an enriching experience, and I hope that throughout my time at UCD, I will expand my knowledge by gaining diverse perspectives to strengthen my capacity for policy formation, analysis, and implementation. I am confident that this intensive curriculum will prepare me to address global concerns in the field of public policies by helping me get a solid understanding of the factors that influence public policy making. I am committed to fostering an environment that is inclusive of all genders and is progressive, and my goal is to use the knowledge I acquire from the program to design and establish policies from an intersectional lens to advance towards a sustainable and inclusive society."
