Center for Public and Nonprofit Management

Local Government Fellowship Program: Spring 2021

​​​​​​​Congratulations to MPA students Anton Krieger and Tariq Mohammed for receiving project placements as we launch the Local Government Fellowship Program. 

Organizations enrolled in Public Management Academy cohort 5 were invited to pitch process-improvement projects to the Center’s team. The team awarded two Public Management Academy projects the opportunity to host high-achieving Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs students for Spring 2021. The Center seeks to bridge the gap between the academic and real-world components of Urban Affairs. The fellowship program will provide students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in their fields of interest, while providing Public Management Academy project assistance. The fellows will participate in professional development training and community engagement activities.
