Fels Admissions Partner Scholarships to Increase Access

Fels students meeting on campus

The Fels Institute of Government announces increased scholarships for our admissions partners. Admissions partner fellows, alumni, and staff will now receive guaranteed scholarships of $15,000 to pursue Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) degrees and continue to receive waived application fees.

“Our partner-affiliated applicants are changemakers who are committed to making a difference in their communities,” says Mindy Zacharjasz, Director of the Master of Public Administration program at Fels. “We are proud to support their Fels education and future public service leadership through this enhanced scholarship.”

Fels’ MPA and EMPA programs prepare the leaders of tomorrow with the knowledge, experience, and network necessary to ignite meaningful change. Our curriculum combines foundational knowledge in data analysis, leadership, and economics with practical, hands-on learning opportunities.
