Rohr Scholarship Available for PA Grad Students

The Section on Public Law and Administration (SPLA) is accepting nominations for its 2013 John A. Rohr Scholarship in Public Administration and Law. SPLA advances recognition of the importance of laws and governance. Dr. Rohr’s work contributed to the field of both public administration and political science, leading scholars and practitioners to a greater understanding of how law affects public administration and the responsibilities of public administrators in their jobs as implementers of the Constitution.
