Hanover College graduates now have a unique pathway to pursue a graduate education through one of the nation’s premier schools of public affairs.

Hanover has partnered with the Indiana University Paul H. O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs to create the Hanover College O’Neill Fellowship Award. Through this collaboration, qualified Hanover graduates are eligible to receive an application fee waiver and priority admission. Admitted students will earn a 25 percent fee reduction toward their O’Neill School graduate program of choice.

“Hanover College is excited for the opportunities this partnership will provide to our graduates,” said Hanover Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Carey Adams. “Whether their preparation is in the arts and sciences or in the professions, the O’Neill Fellowship Award will help Hanover students prepare for careers of meaningful service and influence.”

Hanover’s O’Neill Fellowship Award recipients must have completed an undergraduate degree at the College and meet O’Neill School admission requirements. Essential elements include strong academic performance, demonstrated commitment to service and a record of involvement and leadership both on campus and in the community.

The O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs is the largest school of public administration and public policy in the U.S. In 2021, the O’Neill School ranked first in the country in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Graduate Public Affairs Programs.”

The O’Neill School offers eight graduate programs, including: Master of Public Affairs (residential or online), Master of Arts in Arts Administration, Master of Science in Environmental Science, Master of Environmental Sustainability, Master of Science in Healthcare Management (hybrid or online only program), Master of International Affairs, Master of Public Affairs-Master of Science in Environmental Science (dual degree) and Master of Public Affairs-Master of Arts in Arts Administration (dual degree).
