YNPN St. Louis Scholarships

In recognition of the important role that young nonprofit professionals play in our region, and the value of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) St. Louis as an organization that develops those young nonprofit professionals, the Master of Public Policy Administration (MPPA) program at UMSL is pleased to announce a scholarship opportunity exclusively for YNPN St. Louis members. Up to four YNPN St. Louis members can now receive a one-time, $1,000 scholarship toward tuition in the MPPA program at UMSL. 

Some restrictions apply. This scholarship is for YNPN St. Louis members who enroll in our Master of Public Policy Administration (MPPA) program for the Spring 2018 semester. Students who enroll only in our Nonprofit Management and Leadership (NPML) Graduate Certificate are not eligible. MPPA students can receive the NPML Graduate Certificate as they pursue the MPPA.

The YNPN St. Louis member would get this scholarship when they first enroll in the MPPA program, and it would be applied to their first semester or first year of the program, depending on their course load. Applicants must be YNPN St. Louis members in good standing.

People interested in this scholarship, who are not members, can join YNPN St. Louis by visiting the organzation’s website:
