Apply to JJ/WBGSP - MPA/ID Partnership Program

To apply for the JJ/WBGSP through this partnership program, you must first apply for admission to the MPA/ID Program.

Since the MPA/ID Program has a partnership relationship with the JJ/WBGSP, it is not necessary for MPA/ID applicants to apply to the JJ/WBGSP under the regular program. The MPA/ID Program will submit the names of admitted candidates who meet the scholarship eligibility requirements directly to the JJ/WBGSP Secretariat.
