The ASPA Founders’ Fellows program recognizes outstanding students and new professionals (within three years of their graduation) in the field of public service and public administration.

Following a competitive review process, Founders’ Fellows present their scholarship during the ASPA Annual Conference, receive substantial professional development and networking opportunities, are paired with a seasoned scholar or practitioner who serves as their mentor for their Fellowship year, and take part in other Fellowship activities.

If selected, 2016 Founders’ Fellows will receive:

  • A complimentary Annual Conference registration.
  • Tickets to special conference events.
  • Complementary lodging in the conference hotel. 

Note: Travel to Seattle, other meals and incidentals will not be paid by ASPA.
