Public Policy Leadership

All incoming undergraduate students wishing to major in public policy leadership (PPL) must apply to the Lott Leadership Institute for admission. To be considered for admission to the Institute and the PPL program, students must first apply for admission to The University of Mississippi

After admission to the University, the applicant will be able to access the Special Programs and Scholarship Application by logging in at the same site where they applied initially and returning to the completed application. This application allows students to apply for a variety of special programs offered at the University of Mississippi, including the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, the Chinese Language Flagship Program, the Arabic Language Flagship Program, and the Croft Institute for International Studies. This application is divided into two parts: the first, which provides general information made available to the student's selected special programs, and the second, which provides sections for each selected program.

Note: current undergraduate students, including transfer students and current UMiss students, should follow the process listed at our website, under the heading "Application to the Lott Leadership Institute/Public Policy Leadership for Current Undergraduate Students".

Please visit the Lott Institute's website for additional information, and direct any questions to the Lott Institute at (662) 915-3189, or by email at

Applications for University of Mississippi Special Programs, including the Lott Leadership Institute, are due January 5th.
