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 announced a scholarship opportunity exclusively for YNPN St. Louis members.

Five YNPN St. Louis members received the one-time, $1,000 scholarship toward tuition in the MPPA program at UMSL. 

If interested in this scholarship, please check back in Summer 2019 to see if we are offering it for Fall 2019, as we no longer have scholarships available this year. This scholarship was for YNPN St. Louis members who enrolled in our Master of Public Policy Administration (MPPA) program for the Fall 2018 semester. Students who enrolled only in our Nonprofit Management and Leadership (NPML) Graduate Certificate were not eligible. MPPA students can receive the NPML Graduate Certificate as they pursue the MPPA.

The YNPN St. Louis members received this scholarship when they first enrolled 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.

If you are a YNPN St. Louis member who is interested in this scholarship for next year, please contact PPA Interim Director Dan Sise at (314) 516-6378 or by email
