The MPA program recently received a grant from the Union Foundation
to build upon an endowed fund aimed at supporting students from Union
County concentrating in nonprofit management.
In addition to the Union Foundation scholarship the MPA program
currently provides financial assistance to its students through four
endowed scholarship funds established largely through the fundraising
efforts of Dr. Naomi Wish. Wish is a national leader in nonprofit
organization management education and a past president of the Nonprofit
Academic Council (NACC). She developed and instructs the majority of
the nonprofit curriculum in the MPA program and regularly teaches a
course in Israel introducing students to international differences that
exist within the nonprofit sector. Wish led the efforts to establish
the William Randolph Hearst Foundation scholarship, the Thomas J.
Stanton scholarship, the Reiner Foundation Scholarship, and the Unanue
Scholarships. These endowments provide multiple MPA students with
scholarship aid in addition to federal loans and grants awarded through
the Office of Financial Aid.
