MPA Candidate 2019, University of Pacific, McGeorge School

The Sacramento ASPA Chapter is pleased to offer a scholarship to support Jeannelle, a Sacramento-based public administration student to attend the American Society for Public Administration's national conference in Denver, CO! 

The scholarship includes:

  • Membership in ASPA (if not already a member);

  • Financial support to attend and participate in the 2018 ASPA National Conference in Denver, Colorado on March 9-13, 2018; and

  • A ticket to the 2018 Sacramento Chapter Awards Dinner in May 9, 2018.

The Sacramento Chapter received incredible applications from local MPA students and professionals. It was a tough decision by our panel to select just one person and we are grateful for their time and effort!
