92423March 18, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Hermes Grullon, a DePauw University sophomore, has been selected as a 2011 Institute for International Public Policy (IIPP) Fellow. A Bonner Scholar and political science major, Grullon was accepted to the program because of his "commitment to international affairs" and "capacity for progressive professional achievement," according to IIPP director Nicholas Bassey. "Further, your acceptance as an IIPP Fellow reflects your impressive accomplishments and your potential for intellectual growth," writes Bassey.

The fellowship program includes participation in summer institutes, a study abroad program, an internship, language study and graduate school, and must be completed within six years. Grullon's fellowship will begin in mid-June with the Sophomore Summer Policy Institute (SSPI), a seven-week program at Howard University in Washington, D.C. 

The IIPP Fellowship program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the UNCF Special Programs Corporation (UNCFSP), seeks to enhance U.S. national security and global competitiveness by promoting excellence, international service, and awareness among a representative cross-section of the American citizenry. The IIPP 74278also seeks to broaden access to international education and training opportunities for underrepresented minority college students. The program provides students from underrepresented minority groups with education and training experiences critical to entry and advancement in international affairs careers.
