GET INVOLVED

Students are encouraged to get involved with their local ASPA Chapters. ASPA Chapters provide a unique opportunity to meet key figures in the local public service community and expand your network. Membership in a local Chapter is included with your ASPA membership.

In addition, ASPA’s Sections offer in-depth exposure to the issues that matter most in public service. ASPA also offers quality programming for new professionals at national and regional conferences.

FOUNDERS' FELLOWS PROGRAM

ASPA's signature program for students is the Founders' Fellows program. The program supports the participation of up to 15 students at the Annual Conference and their development as future public administrators. Fellows receive complimentary registration to the Annual Conference, are provided an opportunity to present at the conference, participate in discussion circles and are matched with mentors in their related field.
