Apply to Become an ASPA Founders’ Fellow

The Founders' Fellows program recognizes the current and future accomplishments of the next generation of those committed to public service, whether in the academic or practitioner communities, or both. The applicants for this fellowship will demonstrate exceptional academic achievement and professional promise. All application packets are due to American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) by Friday, October 14, 2016. Please note that you do not have to be a current ASPA member to apply.

Founders’ Fellows receive complimentary attendance to the ASPA Annual Conference where they present their research; an exclusive mentorship with senior mentors who are matched with them based on academic and professional interests; tailored professional development webinars that address their specific educational and professional needs; and personal and professional development through their senior mentor match.
