    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.

                              

    AWARD - Three awards, each in the amount of $1,000, will be distributed to three recipients.  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.

     

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

     

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

     

    • Admitted to/enrolled in a graduate school, college, or university in the North Central Texas region

     

    • Current member of UMANT

     

    FACTORS IN SELECTION - 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.
