NPML and MSW student Caitlin Bright was the 2018-19 recipient of the John McClusky Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship honors McClusky, the NPML program’s founder. “Being awarded the McClusky Scholarship is a great honor and privilege. I am excited to learn what opportunities a certificate in Nonprofit Management and Leadership will bring, and eager to see where my educational and professional journey will lead me,” Bright said.

Nathaniel Hilliard was selected as the first recipient of the John McClusky Endowed Scholarship in Nonprofit Management and Leadership. “I’m very grateful to John McClusky, the Scholarship Committee, and to all the donors who have worked to create this opportunity,” Hilliard said. 

The McClusky scholarship is open to all students pursuing the NPML Graduate Certificate. Students who apply for the scholarship complete an application form, and are asked to write an essay about why they chose to pursue the NPML Graduate Certificate, and how the scholarship is important to their career. They also write a statement about how the financial support would assist them. Applications are generally due in late spring or early summer.
