Business, Economics and Public Policy Scholarships

The Foundation focuses on Public Policy majors in order to foster leadership in public policy analysis and public management to promote effective public policy decisions on national and international issues. Public policy incorporates social, economic and political components of government decision making. With a degree in Public Policy and Administration, students can make decisions and influence policy that affects an organization, a community, a whole state or the entire nation. We believe that a strong understanding in policy analysis is crucial in order to design and carry out policies that positively impact the 21st century global economy. The scholarships support majors that educate students in the importance of the role of economic and political factors in public decision-making and policy formulation; microeconomic analysis of policy issues; resource allocation and decision modeling; cost/benefit analysis; statistical methods; and applications to specific public policy topics.
