Scholarship Initiative

The La Verne MPA Scholarship Initiative reaches out to public service professionals. Qualified students working in governmental agencies within Southern California are eligible to receive an MPA Scholarship of 15% of the current program tuition.

Students working for agencies with partnership agreements with the University choose either the partnership discount or the MPA scholarship; they are not eligible for both. Students may be eligible to receive an additional MPA Advisory Board or MPA Alumni Scholarship if nominated by a Board Member or Alumni Chapter member at the time of application.

Please check with program advisor upon admission as scholarship initiatives may be subject to change.


The MPA Fund provides funding for MPA student activities and scholarships. Please be sure to check  Designate Area of your choice, College of Business and Public Management, and MPA Fund when you donate online.
