    2019 William J. Pitstick Scholarship Application

    The UMANT Scholarship Program was established in October 1995. Its purpose is to provide support for deserving, academically promising students enrolled in graduate programs at universities in the North Central Texas area; specifically, those seeking degrees in public administration, urban affairs, or a closely related field.

    In 2001, UMANT chose to honor William J. Pitstick by naming the scholarship for him to recognize his years of public management service in Texas and for his unwavering support of the organization and its members.


    Multiple scholarships are available in amounts between $500 and $1,500. The award is to be used for tuition and fees for the recipient and is not renewable. The UMANT Treasurer will distribute the awards to the appropriate university for disbursement through its scholarship accounting system.


    Applicants must meet the following criteria to be eligible for the scholarship:

             Enrolled in graduate school, college, or university in the North Central Texas region

             Cumulative 3.0 (undergraduate) or 3.25 (graduate) GPA for the most recently completed semester

             Current member of UMANT in good standing


    Demonstrated academic achievement and evidence of a high degree of motivation toward a career in local government will be the primary selection criteria. The student’s potential as evidenced by transcript and personal statement will also be evaluated.  Additionally, UMANT involvement will be favorably considered in selection.


    The application deadline is Friday, August 30, 2019.

    Finalists will be notified by Friday, September 6, 2019 to schedule an interview with the UMANT officers, if necessary.

    Winners will be recognized at the September 19, 2019 North Texas City Managers Association (NTCMA) meeting.

    Once completed, please submit all your application and required supplemental material electronically to the UMANT President at taylorlough13@gmail.com.

    Please direct all questions to Taylor Lough, UMANT President by email to taylorlough13@gmail.com.
