Masters in Public Administration Scholarships and Fellowships

Master of Public Administration Scholarships and Fellowships

Scholarships for degrees related to work in the public service sector can vary based on the area of concentration. There are scholarship programs for students working towards social work degrees, toward public administration degrees, enrolled in public health programs, and pursuing degrees in public finance. There are a few programs for students interested in a career in public works. The MPA degree is supported by a number of scholarship or fellowship programs organized by state or regional public employee organizations, which can be difficult to locate without an active search. It's a question for a local city manager or county administrator who is familiar with local public employee and public executive organizations.
