Fordham IPED

Fordham University’s Graduate Program in International Political Economy and Development (Fordham IPED)

We are very much interested in receiving applications from former Maryknoll Lay Missioners. It is our policy to give preference to applicants who have successfully completed their service as a volunteer for an international development organization and who wish to specialize in International Development Studies. Former Maryknoll Lay Missioners are strong candidates in the competition for admission into our program as well as for financial aid awards.

We hope you can assist us in sharing information about Fordham IPED to former and current Maryknoll Lay Missioners. Please find attached to this email a letter from Prof. Henry Schwalbenberg, IPED’s Program Director, as well as a copy of our PDF file brochure describing our academic program, our various fellowships, and the placement record of our alumni. Kindly forward these materials to the volunteers.

Interested applicants can find more information at our website at or email us directly at

Thank you for your kind support and consideration. We look forward to welcoming applications from Maryknoll Lay Missioners!
