MPA Online Student Support Endowment


Over the years, the MPA program and friends of the program have worked to create student opportunities through endowments and scholarships. This endowment was created by MPA@UNC alumnus Mike Silver ’15 who saw a need for funding that supported students enrolled in online format of the program. This fund is dedicated to supporting the quality education of the program, developing diversity of thought, and honoring the enduring tradition of preparing public service leaders.

Upon establishing the endowment, Silver stated, “As a former online student, I know how helpful financial support would have been. I am sure my cohort and current students feel the same. As alumni, it is important that we continue to be involved and help to make the MPA experience better for future students who aspire to be public service leaders.”


All students enrolled in the online format of the program are eligible to receive support from this endowment.
