Open to students enrolled full-time in the MPA program within the Department of Public Affairs at the University of North Texas. Applicants must be beginning, full-time pre-career students interested in an administrative career in local government.
Five scholarships are awarded each year by the department. The awards are for 18 months and are worth $27,000 each; $12,000 is awarded as a stipend and paid over 16 months ($750 per month), and the remaining $15,000 is applied toward tuition. For the first 12 months, students serve as research assistants to faculty members for 10 hours a week.
The department begins reviewing applications April 1.
*All eligible students must maintain full time enrollment as established by the University, unless the student is nearing completion of their degree program and does not need full time enrollment.
