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.
