Patterson School Supplement - Introduction

The Patterson School Supplement provides valuable content to the Admissions and Fellowship Committee regarding your interests and background, along with basic contact information.

We hope in the weeks ahead to get a strong sense of what has drawn you to the study of international affairs and your life goals. Much of this will be revealed not from the 30 questions answered here, but in other components of your application -- your personal statement, resume, recommendations, undergraduate curriculum, foreign and work experience.

All applicants must complete the online admissions form for the University of Kentucky Graduate School, as well as fulfill a number of Patterson School specific requirements. Please refer to the Applying to Patterson (PDF) and the Application Checklist for additional information. The Graduate School application portal is available at
