    2020 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

    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.

    • Current member of UMANT in good standing

    FACTORS IN SELECTION
