Thank you so much for your generous support to provide an MPA student with a scholarship. I'd like to introduce you to one of the recent graduates who benefited from a scholarship.
"As a prospective student, I was interested in coming to the KU MPA program because I had a passion for city management and learning how to build a really strong public sector," says Godfrey Riddle, class of 2015.
He continues, “I come from a really poor background, so college was a financial stretch for my family. A master's at the #1 program seemed out of the question, and my acceptance at KU was bittersweet… until I realized that I had received a scholarship.”
If you haven't already, I encourage you to spend a moment watching the video (at least from the 4:45 minute mark that starts the "invest in a bright future" portion of the video through Godfrey's story at 5:41-6:06) to learn what a difference these scholarships make to real people.
Godfrey adds, “I am extremely grateful and want to thank all of the people who have taken the time and care to invest in students and their futures. Every donation amount matters and enables other students, who were like me, to come to KU and live our dreams.”
As you can see, your support really does make a difference in the lives of our students.
Thanks to you, we are at 63%! The more we raise, the better able we will be to offer scholarships that bring the best and brightest to KU. If you know someone who would be interested in changing the life of a KU MPA student, please share this link with them and help us bring more students like Godfrey to the KU MPA program: www.launchku.org/mpasupport.
Thank you, Reggie Robinson, Director and Professor, KU School of Public Affairs and Administration
