In 2016, the Nasdaq Educational Foundation awarded Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) a multi-year grant to support initiatives in entrepreneurship and public policy.

SIPA will leverage the grant to enhance its position as a hub for the study of entrepreneurship, innovation, digital technology, and public policy. 

"SIPA occupies an increasingly interesting place at the intersection of digital technology, innovation, and public policy,” said SIPA Dean Merit E. Janow. “By adding this invaluable support from the Nasdaq Educational Foundation to the extensive resources of Columbia University, we will enhance the School’s ability to collaborate with scholars across the University and other experts to produce important new research, thought leadership, and curricular innovation on the study of entrepreneurship and the policy that supports it.”

"As a global provider of capital markets services, it is our responsibility to educate future leaders,” said Joan Conley, senior vice president and corporate secretary at Nasdaq and managing director of the Nasdaq Educational Foundation. “We are proud to support Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs as they continue to grow and enhance their programs across public policy, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.”
