MPA Partner Program Scholarship and Employer Tuition Assistance
The Voinovich School is honored to work with numerous state agencies, municipalities, professional associations and private corporations. Some of these organizations have formalized an agreement with us to be considered MPA Partners. Employees of our MPA Partners will receive a $1,000 scholarship for their first academic term of the Executive or Online MPA program. If your employer is not a partner, talk to us about the possibility of helping them become one.
Additionally, some employers offer tuition assistance programs. Check with your HR department to see if such a program is available and if you're eligible.
